My whole family loves Panera bread … For some reason especially the coffee. This recipe “warms your soul” as my husband puts it. Very easy to make and full of veggies. Instead of half and half skim milk can be used. Easily made gluten – free by using gluten – free flour.

Look!!! Panera Bread Tweeted Budget Savvy Diva’s Recipe!
