    Spring onion and Cheddar stuffed bread

    Serves: 6
    Cooking Time: 30 mins

    Ingredients

    • 300g matured Cheddar, grated
    • 120g cream cheese, at room temperature
    • 200g good quality mayonnaise
    • 30ml (2 tbsp) milk
    • 3 spring onions, finely sliced + extra slices, to garnish
    • 50g butter, softened
    • 1 loaf ciabatta

    Instructions

    1

    Preheat the oven to 200˚C. In a bowl, combine the matured Cheddar, cream cheese, mayonnaise, milk, spring onions and butter, and stir to combine well.

    2

    Cut the ciabatta into 1,5cm-thick slices, but do not slice through the base of the bread. Spread a thick layer of the cheese mixture between each slice, then place the loaf in a baking tray. Bake in the preheated oven, 20 – 30 minutes, until the cheese has melted, and the bread is lightly golden and crisped in places.

    3

    Serve the bread warm with extra spring onion slices sprinkled over.
