While seeking menu inspiration for my Superbowl Party I ran across a recipe for spicy, cheesy pull-apart bread, this is what gave me the idea to concoct this recipe a couple of months later.
Ingredients (makes 1 loaf)
- 1 loaf potato bread
- 4 bacon slices (cooked and crumbled)
- 4 tbsp butter
- 2 cups cheddar cheese (shredded)
- 1/4 cup green onions (chopped)
Start by melting the butter in a small mixing bowl.
Add the cheese, green onions and bacon.
Slice the potato bread loaf both horizontally and vertically 3/4 of the way through.
Be sure not to slice all the way through, but enough to reach in there and stuff the loaf with your mixture of baked potato toppings!
Now use your fingers to stuff the topping mixture into the bread.
Wrap foil tightly around the bottom and sides of the loaf, leaving the top exposed.
Add another piece of foil over the top and place in a 350° oven for 15 minutes.
Remove the top piece of foil and bake for an additional 10 minutes.
After the cheese is melted completely remove the bread from the oven and discard the foil. Place the loaf on a serving plate.
Simply pull the pieces away from the bread and enjoy!
♣ Vegetarian Option: Remove the bacon to make this recipe vegetarian.
