Cheese & Chive Bread
This bread was the start to a very long day. Good thing it was relatively easy to make because the mac and cheese took the greater part of the afternoon. Any bread that has cheese in it is good to me. I think this bread would be best straight out of the oven so the cheese is still gooey. Mmmm cheese. You could probably substitute jack cheese for the gruyere if you want a cheaper cheese.
Oh, put a slice in the toaster the next day and smoother with butter!
