    Annie H's Note:

    This is posted in response to a request. I had a hard time finding it as half the school calendars in the country have it listed as a menu item but not one offered a description of the dang things.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 32 ounces frozen bread dough
    • 16 ounces cheddar cheese (or cheese of your choice, including blends)


    1. 1
      Thaw bread dough and divide in half. Using whatever means you feel is necessary, spread dough in a 13x18 inch jelly roll pan, or any pan with low sides.
    2. 2
      Shred your cheese and reserve 4 ounces. Spread 12 ounces of cheese over bread dough. Roll second half of dough into a 13x18 inch square and place on top of the cheese. Press down the edges a bit to keep the top and the bottom the same size during baking.
    3. 3
      Bake at 350° for 45 minutes Sprinkle remaining 4 ounces of cheese on the top of the bread and bake another 5 minutes
    4. 4
      Let this cool for about 20 mins before cutting into 12 squares. Serve with soup or steamed veggies.
    5. 5
      Variations: add fun things to the cheese in the middle like chopped red pepper, chopped mushrooms, sliced green onion, or chopped black olives. I do NOT recommend spinach as a potential add-in since it's so water-filled. I know, I know, so are mushrooms, but not as much.

      I've eaten Cheese Zombies for years when I taught school and substituted. My DS still requests them for his birthday. I asked the cooks how they made them and they used half wheat and half white flour. The cheese was American. The servings are huge! The recipe was designed to use up all of the wheat flour and American cheese that the government gives the schools. I gave only 4 stars because the bread is frozen bread, not the homemade used by the schools and the cheese was originally American. I have used cheddar but it's much more oily and not as creamy as American. I do have a great no-knead bread recipe which is very close to what the schoolds make. Oh, our schools serve Cheese Zombies with cream of tomato soup. Yum! They have to make extra (just like on pizza day) because it's so popular with students and faculty a like. Please try these, everyone. It's a huge baked cheese sandwich. I rub butter over the top when I take it out of the oven. In fact, I just made these. LOL~
