Bloomin' Party Bread


16 ounces Monterey Jack cheese slices

1 1/2 pound loaf sourdough bread - long & not sliced

1 stick butter, melted

2 teaspoon poppy seeds

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

3 green onions, thinly sliced

cooking spray


Make one slice down the top of the bread two thirds of the way

through the long way. Then, make a bunch of cuts 1-inch apart

and also two thirds trough all the way down the bread to

create the "blooming bread" effect. Place the bread on a cookie

sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Mix the melted butter, poppy

seed, and garlic powder and poor evenly over bread in between

cuts. Take 1/2 green onion and sprinkle between slices. Insert

cheese slices in 1 direction, then tear the remaining pieces

and insert in the spaces in the other direction. Sprinkle the

remaining green onion on top. Place in the oven on broil until

cheese is melted and turning brown and bubbly. Serve immediately.
