Moo-Na Lisa Cheese Bread is made exclusively for Sigona’s using a cheese that’s also made exclusively for Sigona’s. You really can’t get much more one-of-a-kind than that!

The bread is laced with pockets of cheese and herbs. It’s great for sandwiches, such as crab melts or spanakopita, or simply served with butter. You can even make your own herb & garlic butter, if you’re feeling a little extra! If you find yourself with a bit of loaf left over after the freshness wears off, it makes for a fantastic crouton!

Mac McConnell, master baker at The Midwife & The Baker in Mountain View, and his baking team use savory herbs, freshly milled flour and our Moo-Na Lisa Cheese, made for Sigona’s by Reggie Jones of Central Coast Creamery, to make and bake us loaves of this incredible bread. 

Try them with our recipe for Fire-Roasted Tomato & Roasted Butternut Squash Soup with Sigona’s Basil Oil.

  • In a large bowl, toss together the bread with the olive oil, desired spices, salt and pepper. Spread out in a single layer on baking sheet and bake, flipping once, for about 12 to 15 minutes. Keep an eye on them so they don’t get overly toasty.
