Chili Cheese Pull Apart Bread
• 11 loaf French Round Bread
• 12 tablespoons butter, softened
• 1⁄4 cup of finely chopped green onions
• 16. oz sharp cheddar cheese, sliced into 1x2 inch thin slices
• 1 lb. ground beef
• 1⁄2 onion, chopped
• 2 tablespoons butter
• 2 garlic cloves, minced
• 1 tbsp. sugar
• 1 tbsp. yellow mustard
• 2 tbsp. chili powder • 1 tsp. Worcestershire Sauce • 1⁄2 tsp. celery seed • 1⁄2 tsp. ground cumin • 1 tsp. salt • 1 tsp. pepper
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine ground beef and remaining chili ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Mix throughly. Bring a medium saucepan to medium heat. Add 2 tablespoons of butter then seasoned ground beef mixture. Cook until fully browned. Slice bread diagonally, making sure not to cut through. Turn bread and cut diagonally going the opposite way to create a cross hatch design. Melt butter and spread 6 tablespoons (half) over top of cut bread. Be sure to get in all of the cracks and crevices. Stuff the cuts, cracks and crevices with cheese slices followed by chili. Once bread is fully stuffed, drizzle on remaining 6 tablespoons of melted butter. Place on baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes (or until cheese has fully melted. Removed, top with chopped green onion, a dollop of sour cream, and enjoy!
