Bacon and Cheese-Stuffed Grilled Bread

What you need:

  • 1 8-inch round loaf
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 4 scallions, minced (reserve about 1/2 strip for garnish)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, sliced into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 cup pepper jack cheese, sliced into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons butter

Slice the loaf into a diamond pattern, until about 1/2 inch above the bottom. Pack the slits of the bread with mozzarella and pepper jack cheeses. Cook the bacon to a crisp in a pan over medium-high heat, crumble and set aside. In the same pan with the bacon drippings, melt the butter then cook scallions and garlic until tender. Spoon the mixture into the bread slits and pour excess on top of the loaf. Loosely wrap bread in heavy duty aluminum foil then cook on a pre-heated grill until heated through, about 15 to 20 minutes. Top with crumbled bacon and minced scallions to serve.
