This bread was delicious! Hubby approved, too. I didn't have chives, so I did sub in diced onion and parsley. I also used low-fat cottage cheese and fresh mushrooms. We're having it with steaks, but it was also fabulous dipped in olive oil and spices---just like somthing you'd get at a restaurant and a great New Year's Eve treat. Thanks!
