Cheesy Onion Quick Bread

"I like to make this bread ahead, then slice, wrap and freeze it," says Davona Henderson of Bountiful, Utah. "When I'm ready to serve it, I just heat up slices at the last minute."

    The sauteed onions seem to really make this a moist bread. Good, but next time I think I'd add a little salt.

    Pretty good. I made this to go with dinner tonight. My kids thought it was good which surprised me - they don't really care for onions.
