Holiday Cheese Bread

2 ounces Gruyere cheese, grated
2 ounces Parmesan cheese, grated
2 ounces Swiss cheese, grated
1/4 cup soft, unsalted sweet butter
2 T minced garlic
2 T diced chives
1-1/4 pound sourdough round loaf
Tubby Olive 18-year Traditional Balsamic Vinegar
Tubby Olive Tuscan Herb Olive Oil
Red pepper flakes & diced chives, optional garnish

In a mixing bowl, combine the three cheeses, butter, garlic and chives. Mix until smooth. Make six cuts, 3/4 inch apart, in a diagonal crisscross pattern across the top of the sourdough loaf. Stuff cheese mixture into cracks of loaf and wrap the loaf with aluminum foil. Bake at 400 F for about 15 minutes or until the cheese is completely melted and bread has toasted.

Drizzle a plate with equal parts balsamic vinegar and olive oil and set loaf atop the plate. Sprinkle plate with red pepper flakes and more diced chives, if desired. Serves 3-6
