Savory Cheese and Chive Bread
This week's French Fridays with Dorie challenge is this fluffy egg bread studded with herbs and cheese. Dorie says it looks like an American quick bread, and it does, but the texture is so much lighter.
I used Cheddar Cheese, Chives, Sage, and Tarragon in mine. Dorie says it's great to nibble with wine - I agree - and think I'll make it for our next wine-tasting party. It really couldn't be any easier!
A votre sante!
