1 Italian loaf, about 12 inches long
1 stick butter, melted
1/8 cup olive oil
3 tsp minced onion
2-3 cloves garlic, grated
1 tbsp dijon mustard
1 tbsp poppy seeds
3 tsp chopped parsley (add more if you wish)
12 oz grated cheese
(I used a mix of white cheddar and monterey jack.)

Preheat the oven to 350 F.

Mix the melted butter, olive oil, onion, garlic, dijon mustard, poppy seeds and parsley in a bowl.

Cut the bread into cubes with X slices without cutting all the way through the bottom crust.

Pour the butter-onion garlic mixture carefully into those X cracks using a small spoon and over the top of the bread. Fill those delicious cracks with the grated cheese.
(It seems like a lot of work and trouble but it's all worth it. Yes.)


  1. I made this last night. It was very good! Gone I'm minutes. I used Swiss and Monterey Jack cheese. Next time I make it I will only use 2 cloves of garlic - I used 3 this time and it was a little too much, even for my garlic loving taste buds.

  2. thanks for update on garlic. i haven't made this one yet..will probably give it a try for my next dinner with Sue and Jeanne..we love garlic..:))
