This is my favorite savory bread. It is easy to make and always turns out well. I found this recipe decades ago in the Gold Medal Century of Success Cookbook and it has been a great find! Try this bread with a bowl of hearty soup or casserole. The recipe offers an alternative of using American cheese, but please try the Swiss Cheese! This dough is a rather tacky dough and I've found it is better not to add additional flour. Bake in a pie plate for a lovely round of bread. The soft little pockets of cheese are wonderful. Enjoy!
