My husband and I often make a meal of bread and salad. We enjoy the garlic, dill and cheddar flavors in this savory bread. We think it's best served fresh from the oven.

"Have made this twice. It is awesome. Has more of a biscuit consistency but what a wonderful bread made without yeast. I must have had great baking powder this time cause the top is a little uneven but wow did it rise. It was also cooked perfect for me at 50-55 minutes. I would rate a 4.5 if I could figure out how. wonderful on a cool evening with corn chowder and salad."

"This did not turn out for me. It took the full hour to cook through and by then the outside was over cooked and it didn't taste cheesey at all, it just tastes like plain over cooked bread. Perhaps it was something I did but I don't think so, I don't even buy bread anymore so I've gotten pretty good at making it. For the large amount of ingredients it took I will not be trying it again."

"The recipe needs salt. Very flat taste. Won't waste the ingredients again."

"Delicious!!! Got a little dry around the edges and the middle would not get done. I will probably try spliting the recipe into 2 pans next time."
