  • 16 oz. Monterey Jack cheese slices
  • 1 1/2 lb. loaf sourdough bread - long & not sliced
  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 2 tsp. poppy seeds
  • 1/2-tsp. garlic powder
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced
  • Cooking spray


Make one slice down the top of the bread two thirds of the way through the long way. Then, make a bunch of cuts 1-inch apart and two-thirds through all the way down the bread to create the "blooming bread" effect. Place the bread on a cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Mix the melted butter, poppy seed, and garlic powder and poor evenly over bread in between cuts. Take 1/2 green onion and sprinkle between slices. Insert cheese slices in 1 direction, then tear the remaining pieces and insert in the spaces in the other direction. Sprinkle the remaining green onion on top. Place in the oven on broil until cheese is melted and turning brown and bubbly. Serve immediately.
