Cheesy Bread

I serve this satisfying cheesy bread as a side with meat, fish, soups and salads. The savory slices are lifesavers when you need a last-minute appetizer or brunch item. —Lori Stefanishion, Drumheller, Alberta

    Next time I will use only half the cream cheese spread -- it overwhelmed the other flavors. Definitely a keeper!

    I served this bread with grilled chicken & asparagus. My husband LOVED it. I couldn't find the garlic & herb cream cheese so I used the "soft spreadable cheese" that comes in a tub. I thought it's flavor was a little strong so will use less next time.
