We live in a fast-paced world where we want instant gratification, and our food is no exception.
We want our fresh food that looks and tastes great… but sometimes, as busyness gets in the way, our meals suffer. They become boring, bland, and lack-luster. It’s nothing to be ashamed of… it happens to the best of us. Unless we’re professional cooks or have oodles of time on our hands (or just LOVE to be in the kitchen), we’ll all hit cooking slumps now and again.
But no worries! That’s exactly why Epicurean Butter exists! It’s to give you the chance to be Queen or King of your kitchen! ANYONE can experience fantastic results using Epicurean butter. With this recipe, you’ll wow your guests, and they’ll think you’re a bread and butter genius. How can something so simple look AND taste so delicious? It’s simple: Epicurean.
Doesn’t this look divine? Let me tell you, it is!
Here’s what you need:
Purchase a beautiful fresh loaf of sourdough bread. I’d encourage you to buy from your local bakery. (I suppose you could bake your own too, but remember the point of this is simplicity and goodness!)
1/4 cup off three different shredded cheeses (a 1/4 cup of each) sharp cheddar, monterrey-jack, and mozzarella
2 green onions, sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup Epicurean’s Tuscan Herb Butter, melted
Here’s what you do: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Make grid-like slices in the bread. Your slices should go almost all the way through to the bottom of the bread, leaving about an inch at the base. Basically, you’re making it look like a checker board. Now for the fun part: Stuff all the crevasses of the bread with the cheeses, onion, and garlic. Lastly, pour the melted butter over the top, making sure it gets into the crevasses, too.
Wrap the bread loosely in foil. Bake it at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Remove the foil and bake 5-8 minutes more until all the until the cheese is melted and the loaf is warmed through.
