Colby cheese is my absolute favorite thing in this world... So why not infuse it with my momma,s homemade bread recipe? It's delicious and a cheese lover's dream!!! I suggest you not skip the topping, It really gives the bread that extra note of flavor. Hope my fellow cheeseheads enjoy!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This savory bread is a must for any cheese fan. It can be served with anything from spaghetti to barbecue. Enjoy it fresh from the oven, toast it with a bit of butter or add a little garlic bread on top for cheesy garlic bread. The amount of Colby Jack in this bread is perfect. Yum!
