This recipe is a favorite because it isn't greasy like other cheese breads I have tried. It will not last long! —Debi Wallace, Chestertown, New York

"loved the cheese flavor in this bread. i think i would add more cheese just because i like the added flavor. beer can vary in flavor too"

"I tried this bread because I like homemade bread but don't always have time to wait for typical yeast breads to rise. My husband has actually requested it and raves about it each time I make it. I vary the cheese and it still comes out delicious!"

"This is delicious! We will make it again. We also like it with 1 teaspoon dried thyme & dried oregano & brushed with 1 tablespoon of butter before baking, then brushed with the other tablespoon of butter after baking."

"The swiss is not very noticeable in the taste. I don't know if the amount needs to be increased, or a different kind of cheese should be used. The bread tastes good out of the oven, but a few hours later, had a funny taste. Overall it is similar to my usual beer bread (without the cheese), but less sweet. I also feel that there is something lacking in the depth of the flavor...like an additional seasoning, but can't quite put a finger on it."

"This is a great recipe! I have been using this recipe for years with outstanding results. Depending on the season and occasion I have varied the cheese and beer type. As a volunteer food editor for Taste of Home I love recipes that use common items that I have on hand. This bread is great for a dinner party or a Sunday family meal."

"It wasn't greasy. It came out nice; however, it was just ok. I didn't really think that the Swiss cheese added anything much to it."

"I made this delicious bread tonight and it is definitely a five star winner. I followed the recipe to the letter and the only thing different is that it was done in 35 minutes. Good thing I start checking early. My husband could not gt enough of it. Five stars and five thumbs up. Here is the link to my review and picture:

"I made this last week and was very disappointed. I used 6 ozs shredded swiss and there

was no cheese flavor at all - I am going to try it again with cheddar."
