Ingredients
  • 1 loaf bakery bread (I used a large French loaf. Sourdough or Italian would also be delicious)
  • 1/2 pkg bacon (Whatever size package you have is fine)
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup butter (melted)
  • 2 tbsp dried parsley
  • 1-2 cups cheese (depending on size of loaf and how cheesy you want your bread. I like mozzarella for it's melty-ness but you can use whatever you want)
Instructions
  1. If you're planning to bake this right away, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.  Cook bacon however you like (I like to cook small amounts of bacon in the microwave).
  2. Make a series of diagonal slits in your loaf of bread, but don't cut all the way through - leave an inch or two connected at the bottom of the loaf. Rotate the loaf and make a series of diagonal slits in the other direction, so you create a bunch of diamonds.  Gently use your hands to separate the bread.
  3. Shred cheese.  Peel and mince garlic.  Chop cooked bacon into bite sized pieces.
  4. In a small bowl, combine melted butter (if your loaf is smaller, you could go with a little less butter - say 2-3 tablespoons) with dried parsley and the minced garlic.
  5. Set your loaf on top of a large sheet of foil.  Use a spoon to drizzle the garlic parsley butter into all the cracks and crevices.  Use your fingers to gently pull the bread apart so you can get right in there.
  6. Add the chopped bacon and the shredded cheese, making sure you get into all the little nooks and crannies.
  7. Wrap foil around the loaf but don't press it tightly to the top - you don't want all your lovely cheese to stick to the foil after it's melted.
  8. Wrap the loaf into a neat little package and if it's a big loaf like mine, you can set it on a cookie sheet.  Bake for about 15 minutes, or until cheese is well melted and loaf is heated through.
  9. Enjoy! :)
