Onion & Cheese Bread

19 Apr

Today’s recipe comes Cooking with Doyle.

It’s been a while since I’ve been able to cook anything, because sometimes, life gets in the way. When I finally saw a day coming up where I’d have the time to cook and photograph it all, I scoured my StumbleUpon for a recipe that was easy and delicious. I found this onion & cheese bread, and it looked like a solid dish that could provide snackage for days. If you know how to cut bread, then you can handle this recipe, so get to trying it!

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds sourdough loaf
  • 1 pound Monterey Jack cheese, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup butter, melted
  • ½ cup green onions, diced
  • 1½ teaspoons poppy seeds

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Using a serated knife, cut the bread lengthwise into 1-inch strips without cutting through the bottom.  Next, cut the bread widthwise into 1-inch strips, again without cutting through the bottom.

  3. Take your cheese slices and insert them into all the slits. There should be plenty of cheese to fill it all.

There’s not much to this recipe, and in the end, you’ll have a simple and enjoyable snack that most everyone should enjoy. It’s easy to just sit there and tear off pieces of the sourdough loaf, especially when it’s cut into such manageable portions. My only note is to make sure you leave the bread in the oven long enough to melt all the cheese; as you can see in the last picture here, my bread probably would have used a bit more time so as to achieve a more thorough melt. But even with that oversight, this onion & cheese bread was a snack that I happily munched on for days.
