Everybody loves a good cheese pull! In this savory appetizer by Beantown Baker, melted gooey provolone cheese is paired with the aromatic flavors of diced green onions and mushrooms. Topped with a flavorful poppy seed sauce, this bread is downright addicting. (You might want to bring two!)
For the Mushrooms
12 oz sliced mushrooms
1 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp chopped fresh thyme
For the Bread
1 unsliced loaf sourdough bread
12 oz provolone cheese, thinly sliced
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup finely diced green onion
2 tsp poppy seeds
For the Mushrooms
Heat a medium skillet on medium. Add the butter. Once the butter is melted, add the mushrooms. Cook 4-5 minutes until they start to sweat. Add the thyme and continue to cook another 2-3 minutes.
Set mushrooms aside and allow to cool.
For the Bread
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cut the bread lengthwise and widthwise without cutting through the bottom crust. This can be a little tricky going the second way but the bread is very forgiving.
Place loaf on a foil-lined baking sheet.
Insert cheese slices between cuts. Pour the mushrooms between the cuts. Use your fingers to push the mushrooms down into the loaf.
Combine butter, onion, and poppy seeds. Drizzle over bread. Wrap in foil; place on a baking sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
Unwrap the bread and bake 10 more minutes, or until cheese is melted.
It's no surprise that this is a popular dish at family gatherings. With a balanced sweet and savory flavor, these easy-to-make baby back ribs are kid and adult-friendly. Dig in!
3 1-lb. racks pork baby back ribs, cut in half
1 cup ketchup
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
3 Tbsp dark brown sugar
3 Tbsp worcestershire sauce
1 tsp liquid smoke
1/2 tsp salt
Place ribs in a large pot and fill with enough water to cover ribs. Bring water to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for one hour or until fork tender.
While ribs are boiling, combine remaining ingredients in a medium sauce pan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered stirring often for 30 minutes, or until slightly thickened.
Place boiled ribs, meat side down, on a broiler pan. Brush with half the sauce mixture and broil 4-5 inches from heat for 6-7 minutes. Turn ribs over, brush with remaining sauce and broil additional 6-7 minutes or until edges are slightly charred.
