One of my all time favorite foodie party tricks has got to be bloomin' onion bread with cheese and garlic. Why, you ask? Well, never mind that every single bite you take is guaranteed to be laden with melty, drippy cheese. Forget the fact that a shimmery layer of garlic butter will make your heart sing, or that the whole thing pretty much looks like a work of art the second you pull it out of the oven. The thing I like most about this recipe is that it's just so easy. It takes about 10 minutes prep time, 15 minutes in the oven, and approximately zero seconds to devour. Time well spent, if you ask me.
So how does this all come together? First, gather your ingredients. A loaf of unsliced sourdough bread works best for this recipe. You'll also need garlic butter and some finely chopped green onions, as well as cheese — all the cheese. We used a cheddar and Monterey Jack combo for our cheesy bread (ah, what a beautiful couple), but feel free to mix cheeses as you see fit.
Then, it's time to assemble your masterpiece. First, you're going to cut what ultimately looks like a grid into your loaf of bread. Being careful not to slice all the way through the loaf, cut a few lines both lengthwise and across. Stuff the grid full of cheese, sprinkle on your chopped onion, drizzle your garlic butter, and pop the whole thing in the oven for 15 minutes at 350 degrees. Want to make things even more intense? After letting your bread bake for 12 minutes, take it out, and sprinkle some more cheese on top before baking it for an additional three minutes.
