I made half a loaf because not everyone in my house loves Swiss. I also omitted the celery seed and used fresh parsley from my garden. It's a winner! It's buttery, cheesy and crunchy. Perfect with roast chicken, Italian pasta, grilled dishes and more. I know I'll make this over and over!

Delicious bread. Love using Swiss cheese. I've always used a Cheddar or mozzarella but never Swiss...really good!

I made a smaller version of this recipe using six fresh Italian rolls. I used 1/2-stick butter and about a cup of finely shredded Swiss cheese. Great taste that went well with a cup of creamed vegetable soup.

I have a question for anybody. Why do you cut the loaf in half? (Step 1). Is the recipe only for 12 loaf?

I just had 2 changes: I used a loaf of braided challah bread and I used poppy seeds! I didn't have the celery seeds or a French bread on hand. This bread is FULL of cheesy and buttery goodness! Thank you for sharing this recipe! delowenstein
