Stuffed Cheesy Bread on Crack


Should have made more of this, it was gone quickly!  The recipe is from a blog called “Food Wanderings in Asia”.  Pretty easy to make, the only hard part was cutting the bread without smooshing it!

1 Italian loaf, about 12″ long

1 stick butter, melted

1/8 cup (or 2 tablespoons) olive oil

3 teaspoons minced onion (I used dried onion)

2 – 3 cloves garlic, grated or pressed

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

1 tablespoon poppy seeds

3 teaspoons chopped parsley

12 oz grated cheese (she uses white cheddar and Monterey Jack, I used a 4 cheese pizza blend)

1  Preheat oven to 350.

2  Mix melted butter, olive oil, onion, garlic, mustard, poppy seeds and parsley in bowl.

3  Cut bread into cubes with X slices without cutting all the way through the bottom crust.

4  Pour butter mixture carefully into the X cracks using a small spoon and over the top of the bread.  Fill the cracks with cheese.

5  Wrap loaf in foil, sealing sides and bake 15 – 20 minutes.  Remove from oven and unwrap.  Bake another 10 minutes until cheese is melted and gooey.
