Bloomin Onion Bread

Ever since I saw this Bloomin’ Onion Bread on Pinterest I just knew I had to give it a try. The melted, gooey cheese is simply irresistible.

Fortunately, the recipe is a breeze to make, requiring just a few minutes of prep time. A sharp knife is essential for cutting the bread, though, as it can be a bit tricky otherwise. Beyond that, the process is straightforward and speedy. While I opted for thinly sliced cheese, grated cheese works just as well. Use whichever method you find easiest.

This cheesy bloomin’ onion bread is perfect for serving at gatherings as it’s sure to impress everyone with both its appearance and taste.

Feel free to experiment with different ingredients. You could try various cheese combinations, add garlic, incorporate prosciutto or pepperoni, or sprinkle in different herbs. No matter how you customize it, the result is bound to be delicious. I’m confident you’ll agree once you give it a try.

How to make Bloomin’ Onion Bread

Begin with preheating the oven to 350 F (180C).

Next, carefully cut the bread lengthwise and widthwise, ensuring not to slice all the way through the bottom crust. Place the prepared bread on a baking sheet lined with foil.

Combine chopped onions with butter and seeds if desired. Between the cuts in the bread, arrange slices of cheese. Pour the butter-onion mixture into the crevices of the bread.

Cover the bread with foil and bake for 15 minutes. Then, unwrap and bake for an additional 10 minutes until the cheese is melted and gooey.

Hope you will try this out and enjoy your delicious cheesy bread! Don’t forget to tag me in your Instagram posts or stories, so I can see your amazing results.

    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      I used a sourdough type of bread.. but any other loaf will work fine.

  16. CC Author says:

    Ella: This bread looks AMAZEBALLS! I came across your video on Facebook after one of my foodie friends shared it with me! My mouth is already watering thinking of all the variations of this bread that are possible! Even though we’re not onion fans at my house (we’d leave them off or replace them with something else) your video had me almost reconsidering! Reading your bio you mentioned that English is not your first language: What is? 🙂 Thanks for a great recipe!

    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      Hy CC.. I am glad you like this bread, hope you will try it out in as many variations as possible. I m from Europe. 🙂

  17. onyx Author says:

    I made this the other day. Didn’t look as good as your but sure tasted great.


    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      Oh.. so glad to hear that:) I am sure it was as delicious. Thank you for your review.

  18. Tanya Author says:

    I did 3 of your recipes today for my guests- Thanks!! 🙂
    This one was a hit! I barely spent any effort/time on it and everyone loved it.
    I did individual portions (with buns) instead of 1 loaf of bread though, i wanted to recommend – only use fresh bread! one of my buns was on the dry side, it fell apart completely while i was cutting it.
    Thanks so much for this recipe, i completely fooled everyone into thinking i know what im doing 🙂

    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      hehe:) so glad these turned great for you.. except the old bread one:) Yes.. fresh bread is necessary.. 

  19. Clayslene Author says:

  21. cindy Author says:

  22. Joana Tomaszewicz Author says:

    Looks fantastic and i m going to do tomorrow. I just didn’t understand when you added the mozzarella, on the video looks like you added only the cheddar cheese.

    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      I added both.. maybe in the video was not clearly shown.. but try to use both for better flavor

  23. khadeeja Author says:

    Ella we don’t get these type of loaf bread can you suggest a homemade one and not the sourdough type
