Pepper Jack Cheese Bread with Bacon and Jalapenos
These days, grocery store bakeries are abundant with well stocked shelves and baskets filled with spectacular breads in every flavor. I would guess that French and Italian loaves are the most popular, since they seem to have more of those two than any of the others flavors. Not only are they popular but, there are endless uses for them. The best type of loaf to use for this bread is one of the large fluffy Italian loaves. It lends a fullness in texture that compliments the creamy pepper jack cheese spread.
