Tomorrow is my mom's birthday and I promised her I was going to take the day off and enjoy the day in her honor. I haven't had the time to blog since my routine of school and work has become busier. I went to Korea town with my friend Diego and as we walked, we passed by Cobs Bread bakery and saw this beautiful sourdough! Immeadiately, I thought about doing the popular pull apart sourdough fondue. Just a few ingredients you need, find a good cheese to make the fondue, some nuts for a touch of crispiness, your favorite herbs and most importantly a good sourdough bread. I decided to go for sliced almonds, fontina cheese, spring onions, and pink peppercorn and thyme compound butter for some moisture.
What a toast!
With the left over bottom and edges, I used it as a bowl for a fried egg and breakfast sausage. Blessed!
1/4 cup Sliced almonds
1/4 bunch Spring onions
(optional) Compound butter
1 medium Sourdough Bread
1. Pre- heat oven at 345 F
2. Slice cheese and butter, chop spring onions.
3.Cut bread into cubes! Without cutting through the bread, slice the bread horizontally and vertically at around 1 inch each.
4. Stuff the bread by placing the cheese slices into the cuts. If you'd like, you can also grate the cheese and mix your ingredients to get a more uniform stuffing. Pour compound butter on the top of the loaf, place it in a baking cheese and wrap it with tin foil. Bake until the cheese is completely melted.
Now the fun part, Pick a square and pull it apart!
This one is for you Mom, Happy Birthday!
