Hawaiian Cheese Bread
*Recipe adapted from Taste of Home, photo courtesy of Taste of Home
1 loaf (1 lb.) Hawaiian sweet bread
8 oz. mozzarella cheese, shredded
2-3 Tbsp. finely chopped red onion
1/2 c. butter, melted
1 Tbsp. minced garlic
1 tsp. salt
Cut bread into 1 inch slices vertically and horizontally within 1 inch of the bottom (DON'T cut all the way through to the bottom). Insert cheese in between bread slices. Combine onion, butter, garlic, and salt; spoon over bread.
Wrap loaf in foil. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve warm.
Hawaiian pizza variation: Follow recipe above, except add chopped ham slices and pineapple tidbits with the cheese into the bread. Serve with marinara sauce.
