1 pound Italian bread loaf
1 stick butter, melted
1/8 cup olive oil
3 teaspoon onion, minced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon poppy seeds
3 teaspoon parsley, chopped
12 ounces cheese, shredded, such as cheddar, mozzarella, and monterey jack
1. Heat oven to 350*F.
2. Mix melted butter, olive oil, onion, garlic, mustard, poppy seeds, and parsley in a medium bowl.
3. Deeply score bread into cubes, being careful not to cut all the way through the bottom crust.
4. Pour butter mixture carefully into criss cross scoring, using a spoon and making sure to get mixture into all the slices. Work cheeses into cracks.
5. Wrap loaf with foil, sealing sides, and bake 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from oven, unwrap loaf, and bake another 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and gooey.
This recipe is from Food Wanderings in Asia. This is an amazingly decadent and delicious version of garlic bread and I can’t wait to revisit this recipe to get a picture since I don’t think I took one initially!
