Okay, do I really need to write anything about this bread?
I mean…LOOOOOK AT THE PICTURE…mmmm…
But I will! ;) This pull-apart bread was served at T’s “little man” birthday party and was devoured within the first 15 minutes! I barely got to try it! I’m a late eater at get-together’s I host, I guess it’s the mama in me. I gotta make sure everyone has a plate & is eating before I attempt to fix a plate myself. Well, I almost missed it! V ate it right up, as did all the guests. I should have taken an after picture – there wasn’t even a carcass left – just a couple sprinkles of seasoning! BAM!
For every little birthday soirée or get-together I host, I always kill myself the night before making everything under the sun in an attempt to feed a starving crowd of hundreds when it is usually just family, extended family, & a few close friends thrown in. For this party we had 14 adults & 8 kids…and in retrospect, I should have made at least two of these. Oh well, next time.
So, to summarize, this bread was devoured faster than me left alone with a tub of icing during naptime – HA – now THAT’s fast! ;) Or, to quote Toodee from Yo Gabba Gabba, “Try it. You’re gonna like it”!
1 loaf of sourdough bread, unsliced
2 – 8oz blocks of Monterey Jack cheese, sliced thinly
1 stick (1/2 cup) of butter, melted
1/2 cup diced green onion
2 tsp. Italian seasoning
Preheat oven to 350° F.
On a cutting board, cut the loaf of bread lengthwise & widthwise, making a sort-of-checkerboard design with the cuts, without cutting through to the bottom crust.
Place on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil.
Insert cheese slices between the cut openings on the loaf, alternating to fill in all the holes and provide equal cheesiness ;)
In a small bowl, combine melted butter & diced green onions; Drizzle over bread.
Sprinkle Italian seasoning over bread.
Gather up the loaf by wrapping it in the aluminum foil that it was placed on.
Bake for 15 minutes.
Unwrap the bread & bake for 10 additional minutes, or until the cheese is melted sufficiently.
Transfer to a platter with some small forks for picking apart, or break all the rules & let them use their fingers ;)
Serves: 6-8 people (or in my case, it barely served 14 adults & 8 kids ;).
