Warm, cheesy, and packed with savory flavor is what this bread is all about! It’s just the thing to serve with soup and salad or toasted for breakfast.
We are big-time soup lovers here and I am always on the lookout for a little something to serve on the side so, when I ran across my favorite recipe for cheese balls, it got me thinking…how about making this into a loaf. There were just a few changes I needed to make to turn this into bread and happily, it worked. I served nice, thick slices alongside a bowl of cannelloni bean soup and we celebrated a happy Wednesday.
This bread is great served for any meal and it’s also is a great treat to give to folks during the holidays. Every Christmas, I make several loaves, wrap them in cellophane then tie the whole package up with a pretty ribbon. My friends and neighbors love getting a homemade gift especially one that tastes this good!

Can you make these in muffin tins
Go for it!
We love this, it has become our new favorite with tomato soup! I add a little extra cheese and bake in an 11×7.
Can you make this up the day before you are going to bake it?
Yes – it works out great.
Can you mix the sausage cheese bread up the day before baking it?
Mix and bake ahead. Wrap in foil for storage.
This bread it a huge hit, but I have the same problem of it falling apart…even when I let it sit. Im going to try an additional egg white, but wondered if I could add a bit more cheese.
How long should I bake these if making in little loaf pans or is that a good idea?
Take off about 10 minutes of the bake time and test for doneness.

All these look so good. I will for sure be making most of them.
If this was going to be a gift, and not given the same day, would it need to be refrigerated.? I think it would. Just wanted your thoughts!
Hey there Candy!
Thank you so much for your interest in this recipe, it’ll make a wonderful gift for someone! I would recommend refrigerating this bread if you’re not going to give it the same day you bake it, since there’s sausage in the bread I would avoid leaving it out on the counter. Let me know how everything turns out, I really hope you enjoy the recipe!

I made this bread and it is delicious. The only thing is that it fell apart when I cut it. What did I do wrong?
Hey there Brenda!
I am so happy to hear that you gave this recipe a try, I completely agree the flavors in this bread are hard to beat! I’ve actually never run into that problem so I’m not entirely sure what happened, but next time you make this recipe I would just make sure that you let it rest for a full 10-15 minutes. If that doesn’t solve the problem, then I would add the whites of one egg in addition to the one egg already written in the recipe, this will act to further bind the mixture and hopefully it will be less crumbly. I hope this is helpful, let me know how everything turns out if you give this recipe another try!
Can I use low-fat milk for this recipe?
Hey there Shoni!
That’s a terrific question and the answer is absolutely yes! It won’t change the texture or density of the bread if you use low-fat milk, so whatever you have available should work just fine. I hope this helps, let me know how it turns out if you end up giving this recipe a try!
Great! Thank you. I’m planning on making it tomorrow. Will let you know! 🙂
I really hope you enjoy, if you have any other questions feel free to reach out!
It’s delicious! My friends are going to be very happy when I surprise them with it tomorrow. Thank you!
