The technique of scoring the top and stuffing it with cheese is what gives the loaf its unique look and irresistible taste.

You can also alter this recipe to your liking. Want extra garlic? Add it.

Do you like it more buttery? Use more butter. And you can always add more cheese, if you like your bread extra cheesy.
