Cheesy Party Bread

We had a Dr. Who party with appetizers earlier last month, and I’ve been DYING to try this recipe.  I needed an excuse to make it, and this gave me a reason!  I wanted to hog it during the 50th anniversary special, but I had to be polite.  Hahhaha-darn social standards!!! 

This is definitely an appetizer you want to make for a party, and not for a snack!! I love the cheesiness of this bread & it’s a million times better when topped with bacon & green onions.  If you’re not a huge fan of garlic, then I would suggest you decrease the amount, but garlic is my fav and I could never go without it!!!  

Cheesy Party Bread
Makes 1 round loaf sourdough bread

1 round loaf sourdough bread 

½ cup Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
½ cup cheddar cheese, shredded

¼ cup (½ stick) unsalted butter, melted
2 cloves garlic, minced
½ scallion, minced

2 slices of bacon, cooked & cut into small pieces
2 tablespoons green onions

Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray a large piece of aluminum foil with nonstick cooking spray.

With a sharp knife, cut the bread into 1/2 -1 inch slices. Don’t cut all the way to the bottom as you want the bread to hold together (come within ¼-½ inch from the bottom). Turn loaf and repeat cuts in opposite direction. Place the bread on a prepared sheet of foil.

Stuff the cheese in between the cuts of bread. Try to get into as many crevices as possible.

Mix together the melted butter, garlic & scallions in a small bowl. Drizzle evenly over the bread & wrap with foil. Transfer to the oven on baking pan. Bake for about 15 minutes and unwrap. Cook for an additional 10 minutes.

Top with pieces of bacon, green onions & serve.
