From My Kitchen, With Love – My Bloomin’ Onion Bread!

Today is our next installment of the “kitchen love” series. I thought since we did sweet last, we would do salty/savory next. Some of you may have seen variations of this recipe around the web lately. As my family loves cheese, onions, and bread this was sure to be a hit! The delicious treat paired with  soup for our dinner. It came together quickly and easily and Mr K really enjoyed helping since it was easy enough for him to make.  The only problem with the recipe that we encountered was that it disappeared too quickly. 🙂

Here’s our little progress:

We used a challah loaf since that’s what we had and it worked pretty well. First I sliced almost through the loaf in a criss-cross pattern.

After Mr K sliced the green onions and chopped the garlic, and I sliced the monterey jack cheese, we melted the butter and mixed the veggies with it.

I stuffed the slices of cheese in the cracks of the bread. Then we poured the butter mixture over the cheesy bread. Yummy looking already!

Wrapped in foil this beauty went into the oven at 375 for about 10 minutes and then it lost its top foil and baked for another 15 minutes.

So the verdict on this dish is a resounding “Yes, make it again!” The recipe is below – share your feedback with us here if you try this out. I would love to here your thoughts!

 

Bloomin’ Onion Bread

1 loaf of bread (sourdough, challah, or any type that you love!)

1 stick of butter

sliced green onions – as many as you like

2-3 cloves of garlic

sliced monterey jack cheese

 

Preheat the oven to 375. Make slices in the loaf of bread in a criss-cross pattern almost through the bottom. Make sure you leave a little of the bottom of the loaf intact. Slice the green onions and mince the garlic. Place slices of cheese in between the slices, throughout the loaf, as much as you want. Melt the stick of butter and stir in chopped onions and minced garlic. Place the loaf of bread on a large piece of foil. Pour the butter mixture over the stuffed bread. Wrap the loaf in the foil and bake in the oven for 10 minutes. Uncover the loaf and bake for 15 more minutes. Let it cool a little so you don’t burn your tongues! Enjoy!!

Peace and health,

Jennifer
