Appetizer Tomato Cheese Bread Recipe

I found this recipe a few years ago in a dairy cookbook, and it has become a family favorite. We milk 180 cows and have a large garden, so dishes like this that use both dairy products and fresh vegetables are welcome. My husband, Wayne, and our two children are mostly meat-and-potato eaters...but I don't hear any complaints when I make this bread!

  • 1 medium onion, minced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
