Spicy Cheese Bread

We live in the country and have to keep a very well stocked pantry and freezer because we can't always run down to Whole Foods or Central Market to pick up those special foods to make that special meal when company calls and will be stopping by.   This recipe was developed one day when my husband came home and said that he had invited some friends for dinner, now that was like 4:00 p.m., think fast what can I do to make a special appetizer? Has this ever happened to you?  Hope you enjoy our new appetizer, we just love it and so did our guest.

  1. Looks yummy. I would have liked to "pin it" to make later, but too bad for me, Icouldn't find a "pin it" button. :(

  2. What in the world did you fix for your meal on such a short notice. NO WAY could I do a meal on that short of a notice. He would be stopping and picking up something if he did that to me. HAHAHAHA!!!

    My husband would love that bread.
