Easy and Cheesy Bread

This cheesy bread is a conversation piece in itself..I make this two ways, the way I am showing below is one way, another way is to stuff the bread with swiss cheese and sauteed diced onions and finish as directed. I make this bread for company all the time- it is amazing! 
Start with a round loaf of bread from the bakery-lay it on a foil lined baking sheet (you will use the foil to wrap the bread) and make slices into the bread at a 30 degree angle, then do the same in the opposite direction-the depth of your slices should be about 75% through the bread, leaving it in tact. 

As you are slicing hold the bread together

Stuff with shredded Mozzarella cheese

Pour 1 stick of melted butter over top

Sprinkle with garlic powder and parsley

Cover with foil and bake in a 350 oven for 40 mins 

Open the foil and bake another 10 mins

Tear apart and ENJOY!

Easy and Cheesy Bread
1 round loaf of bakery bread
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Place bread on a foil lined baking sheet, reserve enough foil to cover the bread. Slice bread diagonally in both directions 75% through the bread making sure to keep it in tact. Fill cuts with cheese, pour melted butter over top sprinkle with garlic powder and parsley. Bake in a 350 oven for 45 mins. Open foil and bake another 10 mins until golden.

    Thanks Ladies! Enjoy this!! …I have made this continuously throughout the years..yummy! Bless you!

  7. Janelle, I have made this too for years! I first came across it in a Taste of Home but you stuffed it with diced ham and swiss–since then I have done diced tomatos and mozzarella–so yummy! I haven't made this since last winter, but now that you have jogged my memory I am thinking this chilly November day is a good one to bake one up again:-)

  8. WoW!!! This looks so yummy. Anything with cheese has to be good:) I found your blog a few days ago, and I am so enjoying all your recipes:)
