How funny! I too had this recipe from a magazine and lost it and came looking for it!! I LOVE this bread! I have always made it exactly as written... using garlic powder... I had actually forgotten all about this until a friend asked me to make "that cheesy bread stuff" for a get together this weekend! Thanks so much for having it on here!

I did elect to use fresh garlic after reading the reviews. I also purchased a loaf of sour dough that contained poppy seeds (as well as sunflower seeds & oatmeal) so didn't add more. I didn't use a full pound of cheese. This was good & easy enough to make. Served with a pot of soup on a cold night it was definite comfort food. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for the Dec P-A-R-T-Y event.
