Savory Cheese and Chive Bread - FFwD

I was excited to find out that in French Fridays with Dorie, we were making this savory bread, a cheese bread.  I love bread with "pieces" in it and this bread has its share.  While the cheese melts in, the roasted pepper, scallion (instead of chives) and nuts are distinctive.  Like, the soup, I made tonight, I enjoy the bite in soups and breads.  We like toppings with a crunch also.


When I cut the first piece for my husband, I had not idea, what to expect.  What I got was complete enthusiasm.  He old me that it was spicy.  Since, I even left out the white pepper, it must have been the Monterey Jack, I added to the Cheddar.  I know he eats that although, I am sure, he thinks that is as hot as can be.  You got it, he likes bland.  OK, this was not bland and he really enjoyed it.

While, waiting for it to bake, I read some of Dorie's stories and as usual, I enjoy sitting down with that book and getting carried away.  Dorrie really proven herself AGAIN.

  11. I added ham, and thought that color was beautiful, but roasted red peppers would have been very vibrant. We also loved the bread. Another keeper!
