      Awesome! I never would have thought of this flavor combination on my own, but it was very tasty! This is extremely cheesy, so you must be a cheese fan to enjoy it. In the future I will serve this with a salad of mixed greens and balsamic vinaigrette, or a light vegetable soup, as a contrast to the richness of the bread. One thing I should mention is that I actually made this lower-carb by using a mixture of almond flour, vital wheat gluten flour and soy flour instead of regular flour. It turned out well, but it was ready after about 40 minutes instead of the full 55, presumably because of the substitutions I'd made.
