"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 1\2 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"
