Simple Cheese Bread
There is nothing more tasty than a loaf of sourdough bread spiked with half a pound of jack cheese and drizzled with butter. It is wonderful with soup or chili, and even on its own as an appetizer. Because it is cut into chunks before baking, it's easy to pull it apart right at the table.
Make 2 loafs if you intend to share it at a gathering.
- 1 loaf round sourdough bread, unsliced.
- 1/2 lb. grated jack cheese (1 eight-ounce package)
- 1/2 yellow onion, cut into thin slivers
- 1/2 cup parsley
- 4 Tbs. butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cut bread into diagonal slices, about 1 inch apart, stopping before you cut through the bottom of the loaf.
Cut bread in the opposite direction in the same manner, creating diagonal shaped cubes, taking care not to cut through to the bottom.
Carefully stuff the space in between each cube with cheese, onions and parsley, then drizzle with melted butter.
Wrap in foil and place in the oven for 20 min. Unwrap the top of the loaf and bake for 15 min. more, to crisp up the crust.
Excellent with soups or chili! Serve immediately.
