Some foods just go together, you can’t have one without the other. Perfect example? Pasta and bread. For the bachelorette party, I was serving crawfish fettuccine but I needed the perfect bread to serve with it, and the search was over once I saw this recipe.
This was incredibly easy to make, and it was phenomenal. It certainly doesn’t hurt that I got it from a Trim & Terrific cookbook, each slice was relatively low cal! The only change I would make next time is to add some minced garlic or garlic powder, it would have been great with that. Make this next time you need a yummy bread as a side dish!
Mozzarella and Onion Stuffed Bread
Recipe adapted from Holly Clegg’s Trim & Terrific – Home Entertaining the Easy Way
1 loaf Italian or French Bread, (1 lb)
6 tbsp margarine
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
2 tsp Dijon mustard
dash of hot pepper sauce (I used Sriracha)
1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Make 1-inch diagonal slices in the bread, making sure not to cut all the way through the bottom crust.
- In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Once melted, add the onion (and minced garlic if you decide to add that) and cook until soft. Remove from heat and stir in the mustard and hot sauce. Mix in the cheese.
- Spoon the mixture between each slice of the bread and a little on top. Bake on a baking sheet for 10-15 minutes, until bread is golden and cheese is melted.
