"I cut this in 2, made into small biscuits"

"This bread was easy to make and very good. I used sour cream instead of plain yogurt since that is all I had. This had great flavor."

"My family loved this bread the one time I made it. I did not have yogurt on hand so I substituded sour cream. It was so moist and delicious, I may just use sour cream when I make it again, soon! I also used sharp cheddar cheese. I would never call this bread bland."

"I thought this recipe looked familiar. I've been making this bread since it appeared in a BH&G bread recipe booklet years ago. Same exact recipe word-for-word. I thought TOH recipes were supposed to be at least somewhat original. I'm very disappointed in the plagiarism."

"Today, I'm baking this bread AGAIN. Serving it w/ clam chowder. I'm not much of a baker, but this recipe is both easy and incredibly tasty. I'm so glad to have found it."
