Beer + butter + box = bread! Trader Joe’s beer bread mix is a relatively new item at Trader Joe’s and an easy way to bake up delicious, warm, yeasty bread with a mouthwatering crispy top.
Like the box says, “Just add beer and butter.” I opted for a light beer, a can of Tecate from the fridge, regular unsalted butter from Trader Joe’s, and I added the optional shredded cheese. Well, I was adding beer and an entire stick of butter…why hold back on the cheese? The butter is melted and poured over the top of the batter which results in a buttery, crispy, crumbly top. The bread disappeared as it was sliced and everyone liked the “malty” beer aroma.
