Savory Cheese Bread

This golden bread is a recipe I made up year ago when I wanted something simple that complemented several dishes. These cheese-topped slices are perfect with chunky soup or most any entree.—Brenda Jackson, Garden City, Kansas

    Loved this bread and it took just a few minutes to make. I served it with the Pasta Beef Soup on the same page.
