Here's a delightful bread to serve with your Italian dishes, or just a tasty treat for bread lovers (like myself) There are 2 versions used on one loaf here...one side of the round loaf is Italian herb garlic, the other half is butter green onion. I'm listing the ingredients for both types, as I make the two flavored version...
1 round sour dough bread loaf
12 oz. sharp cheddar
dried Italian seasoning
1/4 c. green onion tops
8 T. butter
1/4 c. finely shredded Mozzarella
Start with a nice sized round loaf of sour dough bread...You are going to slice the whole loaf, first one way, then the other, as far down as you can without going through the bottom. If you have an electric knife with a bread cutting attachment I STRONGLY recommend its use as this can be real tricky with a regular knife.
Next, if you are making the two sides separate flavors, melt 4 T. of butter in each of two bowls. (If you are making the whole loaf one flavor, melt all 8 T. in one bowl and double the ingredients for the flavor you are making)
For half #1, chop 1/4 c. of green onion tops, small. Mix those into one bowl of melted butter. Into the other bowl of butter, for half #2, add 1 1/2 T. garlic powder, 1 tsp. salt, and 1 heaping T. dried Italian seasoning. Mix well. Next you are going to cut up your cheese into many thin small slices. Then proceed to stuff all the cracks in the loaf with all the cheese, filling all areas.
Place your bread onto a sheet of foil large enough to wrap and cover the loaf.
Now, you will drizzle your mixtures over the bread, half one flavor, half the other, or just one flavor if you so choose. Sprinkle with shredded Mozzarella and wrap up the loaf, baking at 350 for 15 minutes. After the 15 min, uncover and continue baking for 10 more minutes. Slice or pull apart to eat and enjoy your treat!!
