awesome. everyone devoured it
Excellent, excellent, excellent! I used shredded Italian 5-cheese blend, along with shredded swiss cheese, then sprinkled grated Parmesan over the top (I omitted the poppy seeds). Everyone loved it! I will definitely be adding this recipe to my "Keepers" list!
This recipe was soo enjoyed that my husband has banned it! He can't cut back and eat just a little... it's too addictive. I only used 1/2 # of cheese and it was perfectly cheesy and delicious.
This recipe is a keeper! I made 2 of these loaves tonight! I scaled back on the amount, though & I used 2 12-oz. sour dough loaves total! Then I used 1-3/4 cups reduced-fat Cheddar cheese, shredded, 1/4 cup each melted butter, one small onion, finely diced/cut and 1 Tbsp. poppy seeds EACH for the 2 loaves! I placed the cheese more on TOP of the bread and still made those cuts in the loaf as recipe directed! I'd divided the cheese up to use on the 2 loaves, and used the butter mixture individually on each loaf! It worked well for me to scale down on the amount of cheese and butter! I used 2 small YELLOW ONIONS, FINELY DICED/SLICED-one onion for each butter-onion-poppy seed spread! The trick for me is NOT cutting the loaf too deep so that the bread doesn't break! The bread did fan out, BUT NOT TOO MUCH! I have to admit I ate one! I gave the other loaf to my Mom and she said that it was a successful recipe! She really liked it! Kay Daly, THANK YOU for sharing this scrumptious loaf! I used this recipe for this week's recipe challenge: Appetizers for "Cook's Corner"! This bread could even be a meal in itself! The idea of adding garlic is also a great idea, ebramkamp! delowenstein
This is yummy and then some. I changed it up and used the cheese I had on hand. Which meant I used muenster on the horizontal cuts and mozzarella on the vertical cuts. I also added a bit of freshly minced garlic to the butter and poppy seeds. I will definitely be making this again, and again, and again.......
