Nana's Cheese Breads

Author Notes: This recipe has been a family tradition since before I can remember. Every Christmas Eve, my Nana makes these bite sized cheese breads to go around before dinner. I've never seen an appetizer disappear as fast as this one does with my family. This recipe is so simple with very few ingredients and requires minimal effort when hosting a party. The flavor of these cheese breads will have you craving them after the first bite!GentrifriedSouth
