Provolone Corn Loaf Recipe

"The flavors of cheese, pepper and sage come through in slices of this zippy corn bread that's best served right out of the oven," assures Norma Pederson of Colman, South Dakota. "Warm slices are great with a simple soup."

"I've made this delicious bread and entered it in the Los Angeles County Fair. The first time, I entered it in the corn bread category and won third prize. The second time, I entered it as a cheese bread and won second prize. The finished bread tends to be a bit on the dry side; I would never use anything but full-fat cheese in it, and I've experimented with adding a spoonful of cream, etc. No matter what, though, it's delicious."
