Crawfish Cheese Bread is my all time favorite stuffed bread!
It’s like biting into a big, cheesy, seafoody, stuffed bread of pure-d-goodness.
Picture biting into bread that’s buttery on the outside and then when your teeth sinks into it you get a cheese and crawfish explosion.
It’s like BOOM or as Emeril would say BAM!
First, I make up a cheese spread that has Sharp Cheddar, Jack, mayo, a little sour cream and spices.
This mixture is spread into the bread bowl that we created.
This mixture is stuffed into the bread bowls helping to melt that cheese before it even hits the oven!
You might want to double the recipe.
Don’t say I didn’t warn ya’!
It’s quick, easy and full of delicious seafood flavor.
Garnish with green onions and enjoy!
