What an unusual bread! And so easy to make. The texture is soft and the aroma of the onion and cheese baking will make your mouth water!

M&Mers, this bread is FABULOUS!!! I followed your recipe exactly, except I left out the extra melted butter on top, and didn't add as much poppyseed (I just sprinkled it over top, about 1-1 1/2 tsp.) I cannot believe how easy and delicious this was!! Another definite keeper!! Thanks! ~Manda
