Expert Tips

*All breads made with at least 8 grams whole grain. At least 48 grams whole grain recommended daily.

Using Gorgonzola cheese here will help you cut down on fat, but not on flavor. Gorgonzola has a strong and slightly pungent flavor, so you need only a small amount to make a big flavor impact.
