Stuffed Cheesy Onion Garlic Bread

Many months ago I saw this recipe on Pinterest. I made it for our Friday movie snack and it was a super hit. The idea of slicing a bread in a crisscross pattern and stuffing them with cheese, garlic and onions appears delicious instantly. This type of garlic bread is very popular and belong to the pull apart bread family. What I loved the most is the explosion of textures when biting into a piece. It has a warm crunchy crust on the outer layer, soft bread texture on the inside, melted, stringy and gooey cheese awesomeness clinging to the bread, the great flavor from onion and garlic and the freshness from the basil all coming together in a perfect bite. It is a true experience and its like a blank canvas where you can add ingredients to ones liking. Please do try this the next time you have guests over for dinner.

Measuring Cups and Spoons
Baking Tray

Red Onions - 1/4 cup finely chopped plus 1 tsp for spreading on foil

2. Cut a loaf of Italian bread into 1 inch slices on the diagonal going from left to right. Cut on the diagonal from the right to left to from a crisscross pattern. 

3. Drizzle oil in between the squares and spread some on the top. Add the cheese in between the cuts.
