How do you serve this if it’s still attached at the bottom seems like it would be a mess getting it apart? Tongs? Knife?

I made this for a work potluck, and it was a huge hit! Because I needed it at noon, and I leave for work at 7am, I assembled it the night before and put it in a crock pot. I turned it on about an hour beforehand - I'd recommend turning it on earlier than I did, as the cheese wasn't as melty as I'd have liked. I also used garlic salt

Created an account just to review this recipe. Delicious! Easy, quick, and customizable. We added diced bell peppers, black ground pepper and red pepper flakes. I imagine it would be good with bacon (though I'm a vegetarian so i won't try that one), hot peppers/jalapenos, spinach or kale.. endless possibilities!

A big hit! We also make the savory party bread found on this site. This will be a nice addition to change it up.

There's not a crumb left when I serve this bread. It's a great party food or accompaniment to soups and salads.

This was great, but I used green onions in place of red, & a dash of garlic salt in place of the minced garlic & salt.

Made this last night for the Super Bowl. It was pretty good. If I made it again, I would puree the onions, or mince them. I didn't care for the diced pieces of onion on it.

This bread received raves at the moms' night out I brought it to. Everyone loved it. It definitely has earned a place at my family's all-appetizer Christmas Eve dinner this year.

Check your grocery store deli for this bread sold under King's Hawaiian bread. It comes in dinner rolls, round loaf and sandwich buns. It's a sweet bread and it does not have cheese in the bread.
