This is a wonderful cheese spread for your bread to serve with many dishes. The little air bubbles in the bread will allow the spread to seep into them. The bread will be very tasty and crunchy. You can slather the spread on thick. The spread left over can be stored for one week in the refrigerator. I actually enjoy eating the bread hot without anything else, or maybe a salad. Ofcourse, I love cheese, garlic, and Scallions. I am from an onion loving family. I have been guilty of eating a slice of onion inside a biscuit.
