  • 0.5 cup Butter, melted (1 stick)
  • 3 tbsp Chives, chopped
  • 3 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 0.5 tsp Salt
  • 0.5 tsp Black pepper


  • 16 oz. Wisconsin mozzeralla cheese, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 2 cups (8oz) Wisconsin monterey jack cheese, shredded
  • 3 Jalapenos, thinly sliced

1 Loaf Sourdough Bread


    • Heat oven to 350.
    • In small bowl, combine melted butter, chives, garlic, salt and pepper. Mix well; set aside.
    • Cut a crosshatch pattern into bread. Start by cutting 1-inch strips in one direction, being careful not to cut all the way through the bread. Leave at least 1/2 inch at the base of the loaf. Rotate the loaf 90° and cut strips intersecting the first set to create 1-inch squares.
    • Spoon butter mixture into spaces between bread squares. Top with half of mozzarella cubes, followed by half of shredded monterey jack. Add remaining cheese, reserving about 1/4 cup monterey jack. Top with sliced jalapeños and remaining monterey jack.
    • Wrap loaf completely in foil and place on baking sheet. Bake 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake another 10 minutes, or until cheese is completely melted. Serve immediately.
