Bloomin' Onion Bread

Well, guess who's been sick for a week now????
But the show must go on, so today I wanted to share a wonderful recipe with you. This may be just the thing you are looking for for a holiday appetizer.
I got the recipe from Your Home Based Mom.
It's super easy to make and taste really, really good.
I made it just like the original recipe, but it could be easily changed
to suit other taste. I think it would be great as well with some things like garlic, or rosemary
or different kinds of cheeses.

Be sure to use a good hearty and heavy sourdough so it won't fall
apart during the slicing stage.

Look at all this carb goodness ready to go into the oven!!!!

Bloomin' Onion Bread~

1 unsliced sourdough round loaf (use a good quality artesian bread)
1 lb Monterrey Jack cheese
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup finely diced green onion (include white part)
2-3 tsp. poppy seeds

Using sharp knife slice bread going both directions (think lattice pie crust). Place slices of cheese in between cuts. Mix together the butter, onion and poppy seeds and pour over bread. Wrap entire loaf in foil and place on baking sheet. Bake 350 for 15 minutes. Unwrap and bake 10 minutes more or until cheese is melted.

By the way, I spotted something as rare as a Sasquatch this week!
