Pinterest Inspired Football Food

The Superbowl is tomorrow! I'm so excited because I've been a devoted Patriots fan for several years. I frequently get asked why I'm not a hardcore Broncos fan because they're the closest pro football team to where I live. But I feel like that's the beauty of living in Wyoming where we have no professional teams - I get to cheer for whomever I want to without feeling guilty.   

In the past few weeks, I've been seeing tons of different varieties of pull apart breads on Pinterest. Everything from sweet to savory. So I got inspired.  And decided to make mine hot wing flavored because, well, what's a football game without hot wings?



You'll just need a few ingredients - a round sourdough loaf, hot sauce, green onions, monterey jack cheese and either bleu or gorgonzola crumbles.  


Slice your loaf into 3/4" slices, stopping just before cutting it all the way through to the bottom so that it will hold together. Then turn it and cut slices going in the other direction so you have little cubes.



Drizzle hot sauce down into the crevices and a bit on the top. Then stuff slices of cheese into the bread as well. Finally sprinkle bleu cheese all over and down into it.

Bake at 400 for about 10 minutes - just long enough for the cheeses to melt.



Top with sliced green onion and serve immediately. In true football food fashion, you can just grab a chunk and keep on cheering.

Hot Wing Pull-Apart Bread

1 sourdough loaf
4 oz sliced monterey jack cheese
1/4 cup bleu or gorgonzola cheese crumbles
3-4 tbsp. hot sauce
2 green onions, sliced

Preheat oven to 400.

Cut loaf into 3/4-1" slices, cutting almost all the way through but stopping near the bottom so it the loaf stays intact. Turn the loaf and cut slices again so that you now have cube shapes. Drizzle hot sauce down into the crevices. Stuff with cheeses. Bake at 400 for 10 minutes or until the cheese has melted. Top with green onions and serve immediately.
