Ever since I saw this bloomin' onion bread on Pinterest I just knew I have to give it a try. The melted, gooey cheese is just too tempting.
The recipe is soo easy, takes only few minutes to prepare. All you need is a good sharp knife to cut the bread either wise this could be tricky. The rest is really easy and goes fast. I cut the cheese in thin slices but grated cheese works good as well. Feel free to use any way is easier for you.
This cheesy bloomin' onion bread is a great way to serve the bread to a gathering and everybody will be impressed. It looks and tastes soo good.
You can always change the ingredients used, you can try a different mix of cheeses, add garlic, add prosciutto or pepperoni, different herbs, any way you make will be simply great. I am sure you will feel the same once you try it out.
