 Cheese Snack Bread
We've enjoyed this recipe in my household for many years, and I want to share it with my fellow readers. This bread is delicious served alone as a snack or appetizer, but it's especially good with homemade soup. My 40-year-old son still requests it whenever the family gets together!
