I’ve seen a few recipes for this type of stuffed bread floating around on Pinterest. One night, I decided to indulge and try it. Yum! Very good, and a definitely treat. I basically followed this recipe, with a few tweaks. I also didn’t measure how much cheese or bacon bits I used, just until the bread looked stuffed enough.
Bacon Cheese Stuffed Bread
1 unsliced loaf of bread (round is preferable)
8-12 oz cheese, thinly sliced or shredded
3 oz bag bacon bits
2 Tbsp butter, melted
1 Tbsp Parsley, optional
Using a sharp bread knife cut the bread going both directions, being careful not to cut through the bottom crust. Place cheese and bacon bits in between cuts. Sprinkle butter over bread. Sprinkle with parsley, if desired. Wrap the entire loaf in foil and place on a baking sheet. Bake at 350F for 15 minutes. Unwrap. Bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
