I think the picture said enough, but let me paint a quick picture for you with a few mouth-watering words: golden brown, buttery bread sliced to be tearable and shareable, with 3 kinds of melty, ooey-gooey cheese stuffed into every crevice and finished with fresh scallions and crispy bacon. I know, you’re overwhelmed. It’s easy to lose your cool in the face of such a beautiful, cheesy wonder.

NOTES:
This stuff reheats great, so if you have leftover, just pop it in the fridge until the craving strikes. Then cover it completely in foil and bake at 350 until it’s good and warm again.

This is called “Party Bread” for a reason. Make this for your holiday parties, and your guests will love you forever.
