Ingredients
  • ¾ cup Mozzarella Cheese, Shredded
  • ¾ cup Cheddar, Shredded
  • 1 cup Cooked Bacon, Chopped (About one 12 oz package uncooked)
  • 1/3 cup Pickled Jalapenos, Chopped
  • ¼ cup Unsalted Butter, Melted
  • 4 Tbsp. Fresh Parsley, Chopped
  • Italian Round Loaf
Preparation
  1. Heat the oven to 350°. Place both cheeses in a medium bowl along with the bacon and chopped jalapeños. Toss to combine; set aside.
  2. Place the bread on a cutting board and slice the bread into 1 inch slices, making sure not to cut all the way through the bread. Rotate the bread 90°and slice the bread again creating a cross hatch appearance.
  3. Carefully stuff all the newly created crevasse of the bread with the cheese mixture.
  4. Drizzle the melted butter over the entire loaf. Use a pastry brush to brush the top of the bread with a residual butter left in the dish.
  5. Wrap the load tightly with tin foil that’s been sprayed with a little non-stick spray. Place the loaf on a baking sheet and put into the oven and bake for 20 minutes.
  6. Increase the heat to 400°F, remove from oven, and carefully unwrap the bread. Place back into the oven and bake for an additional 8-10 until crisp and lightly browned.
  7. Removed from oven, remove foil, and enjoy.
