   One of the local grocery stores recently hosted a Holiday Cooking Contest. This recipe for Cheesy Bread was selected as one of the finalist in the appetizer category. After the competition, we got to sample the goods. This cheesy bread tasted as good as it looked with a little extra kick from the bacon, Italian dressing and garlic.
