Savory Party Bread

June 28, 2012Teresa

Wow! Savory Party Bread is amazing.  I can’t say enough about this scrumptious dinner or party bread. It is fabulous for company. Everyone who eats it loves it. Did I say it’s really EASY! It’s also quick to put together. This Taste of Home find from their annual recipes cookbook of 1998 is mouthwatering and comfort food at its best. It’s a recipe your family will  love.

I served this again last night with Monterey Jack cheese on one half of the loaf and pepper jack cheese on the other. Oh, my! It was delicious that way too. My company loved it! The flavors work so well together. This is great for an appetizer, but if you want to serve bread for dinner in a slightly different way this is a great option.

When I initially posted this recipe in June 2012, it was the early days of my blog so I was still using an iPhone for a camera. My pictures were less than pleasing so I’ve been remaking all those first year recipes so I could get better pictures.

I recently remade Savory Party Bread for a young family who recently had a baby. I made the bread along with Creamed Cabbage Soup and Cake Batter Blondies. While I used only Monterey Jack this time instead of a combination of two cheeses, I also used shredded rather than slices of cheese.

Quite frankly, I think the sliced Monterey Jack or Cheddar Jack cheeses work better than shredded cheese, but my pictures only reflect the shredded cheese.

Give this delicious bread a try and you will soon be drooling!
