Our Bulgarian adventure continues,this time with a recipe that has turned my thinking upside down.We eat with our eyes,every time looking for the “Wow factor”.Eating is not just a biological process-eating is an experience-celebration of life.And here it comes-a recipe I saw in a small Bulgarian village-a recipe that proves that you don’t have to be a big chef or you don’t have to use very expensive products in order to create the “Wow Factor” at home.
- 1 unsliced loaf sourdough bread
- 12-16 ounces semi-hard cheese (thinly sliced)-here I’ve used the Bulgarian Kashkaval-cheese similar to the Italian Caciocavallo,the British Cheddar cheese,The American Monterey Jack cheese
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 1/2 cup finely diced green onion
- 2 teaspoons poppy seeds
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
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.
Insert cheese slices between cuts.
Place on a foil-lined baking sheet. 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.
Voilà -that’s it. Enjoy!Да Ви е сладко!
