I was wondering if the blue cheese could be substituted with another cheese?

I thought this bread sounded good and I wasn't disappointed. It was wonderful. I didn't have shallots so used chopped onions instead and added a little minced garlic. It turned out beautifully. Excellent flavor and very easy to make. Next time I may add just a little dill weed and see how that tastes. My entire family loved it and I'll definitely make it again and again.

We made this bread today. It was so easy, and we love it. I'm thinking of substituting it for corn bread.

I made this bread using onion and garlic powder as suggested in the tip and served it with Lasagna Soup. It was wonderful and the recipe is a keeper!!!

I'm not much of a fan of blue cheese but it tastes delicious in this recipe. This is one we will be keeping and making many more times.
