Reviews for Blue Cheese & Shallot Bread
"Simply perfect as is. I've made it twice, my husband and I ate the first loaf, my sil and non-blue cheese loving daughter mostly ate the second loaf."
"Tried this yesterday!Great bread,and on my menu for New Years Eve.Thanks for sharing !!"
"I was wondering if the blue cheese could be substituted with another cheese?"
"Tasty! This made a nice side to grilled porterhouse."
"I thought this bread sounded good and I wasn't disappointed. It was wonderful. I didn't have shallots so used chopped onions instead and added a little minced garlic. It turned out beautifully. Excellent flavor and very easy to make. Next time I may add just a little dill weed and see how that tastes. My entire family loved it and I'll definitely make it again and again."
"I'm not much of a fan of blue cheese but it tastes delicious in this recipe. This is one we will be keeping and making many more times."
