Blooming Onion and Cheese Bread

Prepare yourselves people. Brace yourselves. Close your eyes and imagine the smell of baking bread oozing with cheese and buttery onion goodness. Then open your eyes, get in your car and get to your local grocery store Stat- because you are gonna want to make this and fast. This is like a cross between an onion roll, garlic bread and cheese sticks if that makes any sense and if that description just made you salivate then we should be friends. The best part is that the bread itself becomes the plate and you just lift little sticks of oozing bread up and pop it into your mouth. I love food that cuts out the pesky fork and knife middlemen. Best of all because it uses a pre-made bread it is quick to put together with plenty of wow factor for serving. I used a loaf of white bread but I think  this would be out of control good with a good loaf of sourdough. You can call me to thank me later.  Enjoy!


1 loaf un-sliced bread
1/2 Kilo or about a little more than a pound of Mozzarella or Yellow cheese, sliced thickly
3/4 cup butter, melted
4 cloves garlic, minced
6 scallions, finely sliced (green parts too)

Preheat oven to 350. Slice the bread in both directions WITHOUT cutting through to the bottom so that the top looks like little squares. Cut the cheese to desired size and place one piece of cheese between each cut of bread. Mix the garlic, butter and scallions and drizzle it all over the the top of the bread making sure to get it in between all of the cracks. Wrap well with tinfoil and bake for 20 minutes. Uncover and bake for another 15 minutes until oozing.
