Hasselback Garlic Cheesy Bread

bread-garlic-cheesy-recipeJust found this yummy recipe via Crock Pot Moms on Facebook.  I can hardly wait to make this.  
We love Hasselback potatoes.  So I can just imagine what the bread will taste like.  Check it out.  Pretty simple recipe.  If you are not a bread maker, use some frozen bread dough.

It is snowing at my house right now, I think this would go great with some homemade Cheddar Bacon Soup (recipe to follow).  
Guess that is my cue to get busy.  
Enjoy, Mare
You will need:
warm water;
dry yeast;
bread flour;
olive oil;
plastic wrap;
whatever type of cheese you prefer;
half of cup of garlic butter;

You start by making the dough of this soon-to-be delicious bread. Take one envelope of dry yeast and mix it in a bowl with a tablespoon of honey and a cup of warm water. Add three cups of bread flour and a teaspoon of salt, and continue the mixing process until your dough does no longer stick to the bowl. Pour a little bit of the olive oil on the edges of the bowl where your mixture is. Leave it to rise for an hour in a towel covered bowl. After this, remove the dough from the bowl. Cut into two same-size parts and shape into a pair of baguettes. Don’t be afraid to twist the dough as it will look interesting after you’re done; it’s useful for the other ingredients as well.

Now, while you leave the dough covered with a plastic wrap in a warm place, preheat your oven to 400″ Fahrenheit. When half an hour has passed, take off the wrap and put in the oven for 20 minutes or so at 350″.
Meanwhile, slice the cheese into slices (they should be very thin!) and slowly melt half a cup of garlic butter. With the help of a kitchen brush, cover the entire bread (remove from oven to work with it better) with butter. Put to bake for another 10 minutes or until the bread reaches a tasty golden brown aspect.
Let it cool for 15 minutes and then make slices with a knife through the bread. Make sure you don’t cut all the way to the bottom. Use these spaces to put in the cheese and some more garlic butter.
Place in the oven a bit for the cheese to melt. They’re ready to serve. Delicious!
