Who needs cheese on toast when you've got cheese inside? This utterly indulgent loaf lured my family into the kitchen while it was cooking, and the aroma lingered through the house for hours to come, making it ever the more tempting.

If you like cheesy bread, but are a vegetarian, why not try Easter Cheese Bread?
