 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      loaves        uncooked frozen bread -- slightly defrosted
      3/4  cup           butter -- melted
    1      cup           parmesan cheese
      1/2  cup           marinated sun-dried tomatoes -- drained and chopped
      1/2  cup           fresh chives -- finely chopped
      1/2  cup           mozzarella cheese -- cut in small cubes
 
 Place the slightly defrosted bread on a lightly floured surface.  Cut the
 loaves in half lengthwise; cut each half into 6 pieces.  (Each loaf will
 yield 12 pieces.)  Grease a large bundt pan.  Dip each piece of bread first
 in melted butter; then in parmesan cheese.  Layer the pieces of bread in the
 bundt pan.  Sprinkle bread with sun-dried tomatoes, chives and cheese,
 making sure that none of the additional  ingredients are exposed to the
 surface of the pan, as they will burn.  Continue alternating the bread
 pieces, sprinkling each layer with sun-dried tomatoes, chives and mozzarella
 cheese, ending with a layer of bread pieces.  Cover with a dry towel and let
 rise in a warm, draft free area for 1 hour, or until doubled in size.
 
 Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown.
 Remove bread from pan immediately.  Makes 1 loaf.
