Quick & Easy Cheese Loaf

This cheese loaf was a hit with my family. I've made it almost every week. The crust was crisp, but the bread was soft with awesome cheese flavor. I usually make the bread to go with some tomato or mushroom soup, and it was the perfect accompaniment. 

Occasionally, I picked some fresh basil leaves from my little garden and baked together with the bread. The aroma of basil held very nicely after baking and there was a pungent taste of basil. Simply love it !

This recipe is super straightforward and simple . You should really try it.
