SAVORY PARTY BREAD

What a wonderful cheesey bread.  The sliced loaf fans out for a fun presentation.  Try it, you'll like it. Once you start sampling it, it will be hard to stop. My family LOVES anything with cheese on it, and this is a real winner in our book!

1 unsliced round loaf (1 lb) sourdough bread (I like to use Hawaiian)
1 lb. Monterey Jack cheese, sliced
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
1/2 cup chopped green onions, optional
1 Tb. poppy seeds

Cut the bread lengthwise and crosswise without cutting through the bottom crust.  (YES - You can do it!) Insert cheese between cuts.  Combine butter, onions and poppy seeds; drizzle over the bread.  Wrap in foil; place on a baking sheet.  Bake at 350 for 15 minutes.  Uncover; bake 10 minutes longer or until the cheese is melted.  Yield: 6 - 8 servings.
