I am guessing this bread can be called “Crack Bread” for two reasons.One, because you slice the crusty bread in an “X” pattern and stuff the cracks with yummy cheese goodness.
Two, because once you eat it, it’s like crack, and you can’t stop.
Well, it’s not as bad as crack…but it’s hard to leave alone!!
- 1 loaf of crusty french bread
- 1 stick of salted butter, melted
- 2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil
- 1/4 cup tops of green onions, sliced
- 3 cloves of minced garlic
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
- 1/4 teaspoon dried mustard
- 8 ounce block of each: Monterrey Jack and White Cheddar Cheese, sliced
- 1 package of real bacon bits
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
With a sharp bread knife, diagonally cut the bread, NOT ALL THE WAY THROUGH, leaving about 1-2 inch spaces, then do the same going the other way to gt an “X” pattern.
Place bread on a large sheet of foil.
Slide the slices of cheese in between the crack
Sprinkle with bacon pieces and using your fingers make sure that some of them get pushed down in the cracks.
In a glass bowl or measuring cup, melt butter.
Add to it the oil, spices, onion and parsley.
Give it a good stir and drizzle it over the bread, taking care to get it down inside the cracks.
ere it is ready for the oven!
Wrap the foil around the bread and bake it for 10 minutes.
Unwrap the top and bake for another 10 minutes for cheese to get bubbly.
