MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 18, 2014

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.

I made this company last night to go with my Beef & Beer Stew. Big hit. Made as directed. I will try with Guyere Cheese next. Can this freeze, anybody know? This is a real keeper.
