Bloomin Onion Bread

See this beautiful bread above?  It is a homemade artisan bread, a boule.  I found an amazing book.  It's called "Artisan Bread in Five Minutes A Day".  It has great instructions on making fresh artisan breads.  They are so yummy and surprisingly very easy.  If you have ever wanted to make your own artisan breads, this is a great resource.  It has so many recipes and great instructions on getting started.

 This Bloomin Onion Bread has been on my list menu for our New Years Party for awhile.  It is absolutely delicious and I knew that making my own artisan bread was perfect for this--don't worry, the boughten sourdough bread works great too.  This is always a hit everywhere I take it.  If you don't like onions, don't worry they are not strong, but they do add a wonderful flavor.  Go ahead, make it for your party, all your guests will love it!

1 unsliced loaf (round is preferable) sourdough bread
1 pound Monterey Jack cheese, thinly sliced
1/2 c. butter, melted
1/2 c. finely diced green onion, with tops
2-3 t. poppy seeds

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cut the bread lengthwise and widthwise - without cutting through the bottom crust. Place on a foil-lined baking sheet.

2.  Insert cheese between cuts. Combine butter, onion, and poppy seeds. Drizzle over bread. Wrap in foil; place on a baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes. Unwrap. Bake 10 more minutes, or until cheese is melted.  Enjoy!
