I have been making this bread for many years. It's a holiday staple at my house. Sometimes I make it to serve alongside a lighter salad and soup or chowder. Honestly, I can just eat this cheese bread as a meal.
Admittedly, I don't really watch the Superbowl, but that doesn't mean I don't like to eat the foods served at a Superbowl party! I have been known to whip up some good eats for the guys on that special day and these are on the Super Bowl snack menu this year. If you love rich, melted gooey cheese, and if you love garlic, then let me introduce you to the bomb…
Slice rolls or loaf in half (you want to use a bread which will be crusty on the outside when baked. I use a French loaf or mini Ciabatta rolls (our favorite)
Pinch out as much of the inside of the roll or bread loaf as you can to form a 'boat', so to speak. SAVE the bread pieces you pull out in a large bowl.
Line a cookie sheet or shallow pan with your hollowed out bread
To your saved bread pieces, add….
the melted butter, sesame seed and garlic mixture
Add the parmesan cheese, sour cream, monterey jack cheese and lemon pepper
Stir to blend (note I used shredded Monterey Jack here but normally just cube it…I like it best when cubed as it makes little pockets of gooey, stringy cheese in the bread)
Fill the bread boats with the cheese stuffing. You should have enough to really make a small mound in the boats.
Have fun watching the Superbowl, or not, on Sunday!
