  1. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Cover a baking sheet with a layer of aluminum foil.
  2. Without cutting through the bottom of the bread, deeply score the bread into 1 inch squares. Place the bread on the prepared baking sheet. Tuck the sliced Swiss cheese into the cuts, making sure to get into each score mark. Evenly sprinkle the green onions over the cheese, tucking some down into the cuts.
  3. Stir together the melted butter, poppy seeds, and celery salt. Spoon the butter mixture evenly over the stuffed bread. Cover the loaf with another sheet of aluminum foil.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese is melted and the bread is hot, about 1 hour.

Keep cheese cheesy, don't overcook.


I took this to a New Years Eve party and it was a hit! I didn't have celery salt so I used garlic salt and it turned out delicious! I also used a combination of monterey jack, mozzarella, and swiss cheese. It only needed to warm in the oven for 30 minutes. Great, easy recipe.


This was super good! I also liked that it was a little different from all of the other appetizers. I made a few changes to go with what I had & what not: 1) couldn't find sourdough, so used an Italian loaf. 2) Added in some garlic powder to the butter mix 3) used a little less than 1 lb of cheese. A little of this for sure goes a long way, and I don't even want to know how many calories I consumed but it recieved good reviews at the Halloween party I made it for tonight. THANKS FOR SHARING! :)
