    A handsome bread that smells and tastes divinely of cheese. From an old newspaper clipping I've had for years.

      This bread was GREAT! Everything turned out very well. The only recommendation I have is to put more cheese in the dough, I could mostly taste the cheese on the top. It was my first time making homemade bread and it was pretty easy. :)
