Feta Cheese Dill Bread Loaf

I have fully admitted time and time again that my husband and I are carb people.

Especially when going low carb literally killed my husband (luckily he recovered).

We eat a lot of soup and salads and with that we usually always have some sort of bread.

Whether that is a focaccia bread, rolls, or a classic cob. My husband is also makes a sandwich every day.

Sometimes in a tortilla and sometimes in loaf bread.

Just depends if I baked anything that day.

One thing we both LOVE to eat as a snack is cucumber, feta cheese, and olives all tossed in either Greek or Italian dressing.

If we don’t eat it plain we usually wrap it up in a tortilla with hummus or sometimes on sandwich bread.

I decided we needed a bread that would go great with the simple salad we eat all the time.

So out came the feta and I grabbed some dill from my garden and I created this Feta Cheese Dill Loaf Bread.

It’s a denser bread that is almost cake-like.

But man does it make for a great sandwich.

Especially if you toast it a little and the feta kind of melts a little.

So good.

If you are looking for a change to your normal sandwich loaf then this is your new bread.

And as always it’s a great day to order my cookbook.
