Recipe from The Garlic Lovers’ Cookbook, Volume II.
- 1 large round bread loaf
- 1/4 lb butter
- 1 bunch green onions, chopped
- 12 cloves fresh garlic, minced finely
- 1 8oz cream cheese, room temperature
- 1 16oz sour cream
- 1 12oz shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 10oz can artichoke hears, drained and cut into quarters
- 6 small french rolls, sliced thinly, but not all the way through
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cut a hole in the top of the bread loaf about 5 inches in diameter. If you wish, make a zigzag pattern to be decorative. Remove soft bread from cut portion and discard. Reserve crust to make top for loaf. Scoop out most of the soft inside portion of the loaf and discard.
Saute green onions and 6 cloves of the garlic in 2 tbsp butter until onions wilt. Do not burn!
Cut cream cheese into small chunks; add onions, garlic, sour cream and cheddar cheese. Mix well. Fold in artichoke hearts. Put all of this mixture into hollowed out loaf.
Place top on bread and wrap in a double thickness of heavy duty aluminum foil. Bake for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Slice French rolls thinly and butter with remaining butter and garlic. Wrap in foil and bake with big loaf for the last 1/2 hour. When ready, remove foil and serve with slices of french rolls.
