Warm Slices of Cheese and Biltong Bread

Who can resist a freshly baked loaf of bread, straight out of the oven and oozing with cheese and biltong? This recipe does require you to make your own bread dough but it is so worth the effort.

Try a variation by replacing the biltong and cheese with sun-dried tomatoes and olives instead.

Serve this bread with a generous serving of salted butter… Delicious.
