Be sure and check out the video at the end of the post to see how easy it is to make.
I made this yummy recipe several weeks ago and my family went crazy for it. But honestly, how can any combination of bread, cheese and butter be anything but wonderful! When I pulled the bloomin’ onion bread out of the oven and set it on the counter everyone dug in! It never even made it to the table.
Tips for Making Blooming Onion Bread
First, buy a good quality artisan, style bread. You want a bread with a crisp, firm, hard crust. You want a a nice, firm style of bread. I originally bought a loaf of store baked sourdough bread and this bread was way too soft. It basically fell apart when I cut it. This is what I ended up with – a mess!
The second loaf worked perfect. You cut the bread into cubes without cutting all the way through the bottom crust to create little tall squares of bread.
Then, cover the whole thing with a mixture of butter, green onion and poppy seeds.
Finally, wrap it up nice and good in foil. Place the bloomin’ onion bread on a cookie sheet and pop it into the oven. About 15 minutes later or once the cheese is all melted and gooey it is ready to eat. Please wait a few minutes so you don’t totally burn your mouth. You are not going to want to wait but please do. I can not be held responsible for any cheese burns in your mouth if you don’t wait!
