Bloomin' Onion Bread

The second I saw this recipe for Bloomin' Onion Bread, I knew I had to give it a try. Well, I did... and it's delicious! It's bread and butter and cheese, how could it not be?

  • 1 loaf of sourdough bread, unsliced
  • 1 package (12-16 oz.) monterey jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup green onions, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons poppy seeds
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Slice your bread lengthwise and widthwise to create a grid without cutting through the bottom.

Slice the cheese and stuff the slices into the bread between the cuts.

Chop the onion.

Combine the onions and butter. Place the bread on a foil lined baking sheet and drizzle with the butter/onion mixture. Sprinkle with poppy seeds.

Cover the bread with foil and bake for 15-20 minutes. Uncover and bake for another 15 minutes or until the cheese has completely melted (gently pull the bread apart to check the cheese inside too). That's it!

We had about 1/2 of the loaf leftover the next day so I reheated it and dipped the bread pieces in marinara. I highly recommend that too!

  8. Oh my gosh, this looks sooooo good and so dangerous...

  9. i can do this vegan and boy it will be so good with bowl of soup or a salad.... thanks!!!

  10. I made this tonight and it's really good. I live at 3400 ft. elevation so I cooked it at 350 for 15 minutes covered, and then at 400 for 20 minutes uncovered. It was perfect--some crisp and still really soft. The green onions really bring out the flavor in this dish, so don't skimp on them even though it looks like a lot as you're initially sprinkling them on the bread. I would make this again. Thanks!
