The Basic Fundamentals

Guests will be clamoring to devour every last morsel of this indulgent appetizer. Serve the high-flavor bread with a serrated knife close at hand to cut through the bottom of the bread loaf.

1 {1 1/2-pound} artisan bread loaf
1/2 cup melted butter
3 garlic cloves, pressed
3 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
1 {8-ounce} block extra sharp Cheddar cheese
1 {8-ounce} block Monterrey Jack cheese with peppers
1 {4-ounce} jar diced pimientos, drained
8 cooked and crumbled bacon slices
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Cut bread loaf to the bottom but not all the way through crosswise and lengthwise into 1-inch cubes, using a serrated knife. Place loaf onto a lightly greased foil-lined sheet pan. Stir together butter, garlic & chives. Gently pull apart bread cubes and spoon butter mixture into crevasses. Repeat over entire loaf. Cover bread loosely with foil and bake 10 minutes. Meanwhile, using a box grater, shred cheeses and toss in a large bowl with pimientos, bacon and parsley. Remove bread from oven and let stand 1 to 2 minutes. Gently pull apart the bread cubes and generously stuff the cheese mixture into bread crevasses.
Repeat over entire loaf. Return bread to oven and bake uncovered 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly.

The Extra Point

Try the bread with a variety of your favorite cheese combinations. Gouda & Swiss would be absolutely divine.

Buttermilk Lipstick Tailgating
BROUGHT TO YOU BYButtermilk Lipstick Tailgating Southeast Dairy Association Rebecca Gordon

Football fanatics wouldn’t be able to indulge in game day goodness quite the same
without a collection of dedicated dairy farmers from across the Southeast.
The non-profit Southeast United Dairy Industry Association, Inc. (SUDIA) is funded by dairy farm families of the Southeast and works with schools, health professionals, retailers, dairy processors and the public to promote dairy foods throughout Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.

Dairy foods contain nine essential nutrients that are instrumental in building strong bones and healthy bodies.
To that end, SUDIA works with schools, health professionals, farmers, processors, media and milk-lovers of all ages to provide them with nutritional information, research and recipes for a healthy lifestyle that includes three servings of milk, cheese or yogurt every day.

America’s dairy industry is much more than milk. It’s economic activity, jobs and supporting local businesses. The United States is home to a mixture of large and small dairy farms — both of which contribute to the local economy and tax base.
