Spring onion and cheddar stuffed bread
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
1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC. 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 on a baking tray. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-30 minutes, until the cheese, has melted, and the bread is lightly golden and crispy in places.
3. Serve the bread warm with extra spring onion slices sprinkled over.
