Lydia’s Cheesy Bread

January 19, 2012

The first time I had this bread was up at my parents house at the Lake when dad’s cousin Lydia was there.  She was the funniest lady and will be missed bunches.  Lydia always had a few jokes to tell and some were a little risque’ but she ALWAYS made me smile.  This recipe is to the best of my recollection, so if you know the whole recipe please let me know.  I would love to get a copy, even though this was Delish.

Here’s what you need:

1 – 1 lb round loaf of sourdough, approximate weight
8 oz.  Monterey Jack cheese, thinly sliced
4 oz.  Cheddar cheese, thinly sliced
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
3 green onions, thinly sliced
1 tsp. granulated garlic

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Place round of bread on a cutting board and start slicing into 1″ slices almost all the way through; leaving each piece still attached.

 
Then holding the bread really tightly together slice the other way so you are making 1″ cube cuts and going almost all the way through but still leaving it intact.  The second direction is a little harder to slice, but just keep the bread tightly together.
 
Place bread round on top of tin foil (enough to cover the bread) on a baking sheet.
 

 Melt butter in a small dish and add the Parmesan, sliced green onions and granulated garlic to the butter.  Set aside.  Place the pieces of cheese in between the cubes of bread going around each cube.  I cut most of the pieces into 1″ x 2-1/2″ or so and then cut those in half when I needed smaller pieces.

Pour the butter mixture over the top of the bread, getting into as many spaces as possible.  Fold the tin foil up and over the bread covering completely.  Bake for 15 minutes covered then open the foil and bake an additional 15 minutes.
 
Cheesy Yummy Goodness!
Serves – 8
Enjoy!
