Update Servings
  • 1 loaf sourdough bread, unsliced
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon basil leaves, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 8 ounces sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 8 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
15 mins
25 mins
45 mins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a sheet of heavy-duty foil with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.

Slice bread into 1 1/2 inch slices, cutting to, but not through to the bottom of the loaf.

Slice bread again into 1 1/2 inch slices in opposite direction in the same manner, forming bread-sticks. Place loaf on prepared foil.

In small saucepan, melt butter over low heat, stir in basil and garlic.

Gently separate the bread with your fingers, then spoon the butter mixture in all of the seams, making sure it is evenly distributed among the whole loaf. Wrap the loaf up in the foil and place on a baking stone or directly on the oven rack and bake for 10 minutes.

Remove from the oven and increase the oven temperature to 425 degrees F.

Open the foil and sprinkle the shredded cheese on top of the bread. There will be a lot of cheese, so try to push down as much as you can in between all of the crevices in the bread. Leave the foil open and return it to the oven. Bake until the cheese is completely melted, bubbling and starting to brown on top, about 15 minutes.

Let stand for 5 minutes before serving. Dig in!

"WOW! These were crazy good. And I only used half the cheese on a big loaf of Vienna bread! It was difficult to get the pieces out, but used a knife to cut through the bottom since this got a little crisp (which was great with the soft buttery-garlicy middles). I will be making this again!"
