"This is the most delicious bread, both warm from the oven or toasted. It also makes the best super cheesy grilled cheese sandwiches! This is also good with a bit of basil worked into the dough. I have also made this in a bread machine, but I do NOT recommend it. The cheese becomes too pulverized and it does not turn out even remotely as good. This makes two loaves so even though it is some trouble to make, as any good homemade bread is, you can make it once and get two loaves for your trouble - one for now and one for later. ***Edit: I haven't made this bread in a while, and Kay's review reminded me that it is good to replace at least some of the shredded cheese with small chunks instead, if you want a more perceptably cheesy flavor. The shreds do tend to blend in with the dough, while the chunks melt into pockets in the bread. ***"

"Just needs a pinch more salt and garlic. I loved this bread. I can't wait to try it with herbs baked in. Makes great toast and I will be using slices for mini cheese pizzas tonight."
"Since I only had time to throw ingredients into my breadmaker, I had the bright idea to try using only chunks, in the hopes that they would remain visible in the loaf. No such luck; they melted in beautifully. My loaf rose so nicely, and looked perfect when we took it out. We were in the middle of dinner and couldn't wait for it to cool, so it got a bit smooshed. But it sure tasted great--I especially loved the crust! The crust has a very buttery texture--could that be because of the cheese "melted" into the bread? Who knows? "
"You need to make things easy on yourself. Buy some self-rising flour (3-cups) a 12-ounce can of beer and 3-Tablespoons sugar. Add whatever spices and ingredients you'd like. Bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes and you have some wonderful, easy bread"
"This is a very tasty bread. You are able to taste the garlic, although it's subtle, not overpowering. You cannot, however, taste the cheese, and since I'm a cheese freak, it was a bit of a disappoint for me. The loaves baked up beautifully, and fresh baked bread is one of my favorite scents. Recipe was made as directed, but in the future I will be adding more cheese to satisfy my cheese jones."
"I made this bread a week ago for a party. The bread baked well and the texture was good, but the flavor was not a hit. My only change in the recipe, was a slight increase in garlic...overall I was not impressed, and my friends weren't into it. I'm not sure why. Thank you for posting, but I probably will not be making this one again."
"I made this bread a few days ago, according to recipe, but doubled the garlic (I love garlic!). It was very good. Paired it with a pasta in red sauce for dinner, then used it to make toasted cheese sandwiches the next day. Only suggestion is add more cheese, or get the Kraft Crumbles."
"This bread is the best! I worked in a bakery and this recipe is just as good as it gets. I would not change or add anything to this recipe."
"My family loved this bread! I made it in my bread machine, because I wanted the cheese to be combined with the bread .. I also halved the recipe, and thought that the amount of cheese was just right .. Thanks for a winner!"
