Well I'm not sure I even need to add any words to this; the picture pretty much says it all. A round of bread sliced almost all the way through, oozing with cheese and diced green onions and poppy seeds. You pull off cubes of the cheese-soaked bread with your fingers and pop them into your mouth.
Does it get any better?
No. It does not.
One word of warning: The first time I made this, I had no idea how filling it was. I served it with spaghetti.
We did not need the spaghetti.
The second time, I served with a small fruit salad.
This would also be wonderful with a light (think broth-y) soup.
This recipe is officially an appetizer, but if you think cheese fondue, you can call it a main dish and I'd be behind you 100 percent. Just don't think about calories.
Tomorrow you can have salad for dinner. Tonight? Lick your fingers and enjoy.
Go visit Leigh Anne at Your Homebased Mom blog for the recipe and a thorough "Bloomin' Onion Bread" tutorial. She got the recipe from See Jane in the Kitchen! who got it from The Changeable Table. You know a recipe's a winner when it keeps getting passed from blog to blog.
