Cheese-Oozing Onion Bread

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.
Much better.
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.

Thanks for dropping by my blog and leaving a sweet comment :). This onion bread looks amazing! I love any type of homemade bread - it's the best kind of bread there is! Love the book you've written too. Some of us could definitely use the help and encouragement :). I don't have a castle to be queen of just yet, but when I do, I just might want to pick up a copy ;) haha.

Thank so much for stopping by to say hello! I'm so envious that you have a lemon tree in your yard!

Hi Lynn! This looks fantastic! I'm having the annual Six Chicks party tomorrow night and . . . . I'm thinking this would go extremely well with cosmos. Just sayin'.

Hey Lynn! Me and the Chicks DEVOURED this bread. It's outstanding! And, just so you know, it went really, REALLY well with cosmos. I did the personal research.
