Ingredients You’ll Need

Round Italian Loaf:

I used a round Italian loaf. You can pretty much use any type of bread that you’d like, but the round works best for this recipe.

Shredded Pepper Jack Cheese:

I used about 8 ounces of pepper jack cheese. You could substitute another type of shredded cheese, but pepper. Jack just works here.

Melted Butter:

You’ll use two sticks of butter. Unsalted works best.

Seasonings:

You’ll use about 3/4 of a tablespoon of onion powder and just a tiny bit of Cajun seasoning.
