Scribbled Underline

1 large loaf or boule-style Italian bread, Sourdough or French could also work ½ cup (113.5 g) butter, unsalted or salted is fine, melted 1 clove garlic, minced 1 bunch scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced 8 ounces (226.8 g) sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded (about 2 cups) 8 ounces (226.8 g) Monterey Jack cheese, shredded (about 2 cups)


White Scribbled Underline

– Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a sheet of heavy-duty foil with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.

Cut a cross-hatch pattern into the top of the bread by slicing ½-inch grid lines into the bread, stopping about ¼-inch from the bottom of the bread so that it stays together.  

Place the bread on the piece of foil that has been sprayed. 

Open the foil and sprinkle the shredded cheese on top of the bread. There will be a lot of cheese, so try to push down as much as you can in between all of the crevices in the bread.  

Gently separate the bread with your fingers, then spoon the butter mixture in all of the seams, making sure it is evenly distributed among the whole loaf. 

Wrap the loaf up in the foil and place on a baking stone or directly on the oven rack and bake for 10 minutes.
