Oozy Stuffed Sourdough Loaf Fit for All Levels of High
This is the perfect baked good for the baked cook. The required attention span and amount of work are very minimal and the return very high… or at least seems that way to people who are very high while they’re eating it. However, just in case you feel the complexity levels are too high, I’ve simplified this recipe to accommodate any level of motor skills.
Cooking for the Munchies | Vegeterian | While on the High
1 unsliced loaf sourdough bread
4 oz room-temperature cream cheese
3 stems scallions, finely chopped
3 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp chili powder (optional)
10–15 slices cheese (I like to use Monterey Jack and provolone, but whatever fits your taste will work), cut into strips
½ cup cooked bacon bits (optional)
I can manage cooking
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- Using a bread knife, make a diagonal cut down through the top of the bread, leaving the bottom of the crust intact. Repeat across the entire loaf, with cuts approximately 1 inch apart. Turn the bread 90 degrees and repeat the slices vertically. When you’re done, the loaf should be cross-cut into 1-inch squares.
- Spread the cream cheese between the 1-inch slices in the bread.
- In a mixing bowl, combine together the scallions, butter, and garlic and the chili powder, if using, and stir until well combined. Drizzle the mixture over the bread between all the cracks—don’t skimp.
- Insert the strips of cheese into the cracks in the bread; the strips should be the same height as the slices in the bread so they don’t stick out of the top of the loaf.
- Lay a long piece of foil on the counter horizontally and a second long piece on top of it vertically. Place the stuffed bread loaf in the center of the foil ‘cross’ and wrap the loaf.
- Bake for 15 minutes. Open the top of the foil and bake for another 5 to 10 minutes, or until the chocolate and marshmallows are completely melted. Remove from the oven.
- Tear the bread apart and enjoy.
I can manage
Forget the cream cheese. It’s not that important; you’ll still enjoy a lovely dish without challenging yourself too much.
Forget the melted butter mix (that means no scallions or garlic as well). Just create a weird crisscross version of a grilled cheese sandwich. You won’t be left hungry.
I … eh, what were we talking about?!
Just eat the bread. You’ll survive. Enjoy the flight …
