Bloomin' Onion Bread Mate

Ahh...the bloomin' onion...straight from the open plains of the Aussi's mate..or your local Outback.  But this homemade bread twist is a perfect appetizer to warm your guests as they arrive, not to mention less mess and guilt! It's extremely fast and super easy for something that looks rather fancy. We just might have the next staple that will be showing up at dinner parties far and wide....crickey!
Bloomin' Onion Bread

1 unsliced loaf sourdough bread
12-16 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, thinly sliced
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup finely diced green onion

Cut the bread lengthwise and widthwise without cutting through the bottom crust. This can be a little tricky going the second way but the bread is very forgiving.

Place on a foil-lined baking sheet. Insert cheese slices between cuts. Combine butter, onion, and poppy seeds. Drizzle over bread. Wrap in foil; place on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Unwrap the bread and bake 10 more minutes, or until cheese is melted.
