Onion Cheese Bread Appetizer

This bread is yummy served as an appetizer or with soup. "We nicknamed it Louisiana Lagniappe Bread," relates Debbie Letzring from Pineville, Louisiana. "'Lagniappe' is Louisiana French for 'extra', and this bread is extra-good."

    Delicious! I substituted shredded Colby Jack cheese as I didn't have Monterey Jack.
