Grandma's Country Cheese Bread

Updated: Sep 20, 2020

I can't take credit for this recipe. It has been handed down for generations! Courtesy of my Grandma Nelson, this bread was a staple during my childhood and now I am passing it on to you. One of my children's favorites. This simple recipe will give you two loves and tons of flavor. Afraid of baking bread? Please don't be! I have made A LOT of mistakes while making this and it's still perfect. Use it to dip in soups and stews, make a sandwich out of it or just warm it up and savor it.

We loved the cheesy bread! So flavorful and crusty on the outside and tender and chewy on the inside! Will make this often!
