This is one of the recipes I included in a cookbook I put together after my grown children kept calling home to ask how to make some of their favorite dishes. What a wonderful experience that was, gathering my mother's and my own recipes plus those from friends and family. My daughters and some of their friends did some artwork for it, and we now have a book we are proud to share!
"This chewy bread, flecked with spicy pepperoni, is a favorite no matter where I take it," reports Annette Self of Junction City, Ohio. "I often use slices of it to make garlic bread when I serve Italian meals," she adds.
"I adapted an old family recipe to take advantage of the handy roll mixes that are available these days," explains Dawn Conlan of Woodbridge, Virgina. "These savory crescents are a must at holiday get-togethers and special occasions."
Convenient onion soup mix gives this stunning braided loaf mild onion flavor. It's even more delicious spread with Caramelized Onion butter. As a music professor/conductor, I sometimes share this treat with my musicians to give us all an energy boost!

My sister and I won blue ribbons in 4-H with this bread many years ago. The recipe makes a beautiful, round golden loaf. With a layer of cheese peeking out of every slice, it's definitely worth the effort.
