This recipe is very reminiscent of Billy Blue Bread from restaurant in my childhood hometown, and I am thankful for the starting place.<br/><br/>I used a little less blue cheese, added two fresh garlic cloves (minced) in addition to the powdered, and added 1 T or so of mayonnaise (to make it more like what I was craving)... It was pungent, garlicy, and decadent: exactly the dinner (with red wine & a very large salad) I'd hoped for for New Year's Eve.
Wow, Marg, we just loved this bread! We are blue cheese lovers so this really hit the spot. I did use minced fresh garlic rather than garlic powder. I find it easier when making this type of bread to turn it on its side after slicing, bend backward in a slight curve, then butter the insides of the slices. This opens them some and I think makes it easier, as long as you can do this without breaking the slices apart. Anyway, this was fantastic with our soup tonight and I really appreciate you posting this tasty recipe.
