Garlic Butter, Cheddar Cheese and Bacon Pull-Apart Bread

I had bought a lot of cheese because it was on sale, but then found myself at a loss on what to do with it. While browsing the net I stumbled upon a “blooming onion” so decided to take that idea and make a blooming loaf with cheddar cheese. This type of bread has been made many times before, so I certainly did not come up with the idea. It is actually quite simple to make.

Ingredients
  • 1 round loaf of Italian bread
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • ½ teaspoon garlic salt or garlic butter
  • ½ teaspoon dry basil or other dry herb that you like
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup fried/baked and crumbled maple bacon (use real bacon)
 Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Melt butter in a small bowl and set aside to cool.
  3. Use a bread knife to cut the bread in a “tic-tac-toe” pattern without cutting through the bottom of the bread.
  4. Stir garlic salt and basil into butter and drizzle over the bread.
  5. Stuff all of the bread crevices with the cheese and bacon.
  6. Lightly wrap in aluminum foil and bake for 15 minutes.
  7. Serve warm.
