Cheddar Cheese Casserole Bread

READY IN: 2hrs 25mins
Recipe by GrandmaIsCooking

This recipe has been a hit at my house, so give it a try. I adopted it from the Recipezaar account in February 2005. It was very good as written, so I really did not change it, except to give additional options for pan size. I also decreased the salt from 1 tablespoon to 2 teaspoons.

I REALLY loved this. I made it yesterday, and yes, it turned out very dense (actually thought I did something wrong until I read other reviews), but I still loved it! I actually made some spinach cheese dip (soon to be posted, if not already) and spread that on there and it was WONDERFUL! It didn't have a terribly cheesy taste, but I could taste it, and that's good enough for me. I might throw in garlic next time.
