Read on to learn how to make this fun, cheesy  appetizer.

Gather the ingredients for French onion pull-apart bread

To make this recipe, start by choosing a large loaf of uncut bread. "If you are serving a large crowd, pick a loaf that is substantial like a large ciabatta. If you [are having] a smaller gathering, a small, round sourdough works nice," Hahn shares. Then, you'll need 2 large onions, some fresh garlic, Gruyere or Swiss cheese, some butter, avocado oil, salt, and pepper.

Caramelize the onions

Thinly slice the onions and place them, along with the oil, into a large frying pan over medium heat. "If you prefer, you can use about 2 tablespoons of butter instead of the oil," Hahn remarks. Stir the onions every 10 minutes or so as they go through the caramelizing process. "Making caramelized onions takes some patience. You don't want to cook them on high heat, as the slower cooking method gives you the most flavorful onions that are perfect for this French onion bread," Hahn remarks. When the onions are almost done, about 1 hour, preheat the oven to 350 F.

Make the butter mixture

While the onions are cooking, shred the cheese, and set aside. To get the butter mixture ready, add the butter to a small pot over medium heat. Once the butter has melted, crush the garlic with a garlic press and add that to the pot, along with the salt and pepper. When the onions are done caramelizing, add the onions to the butter mixture, and stir to combine.

Slice the bread, stuff, and serve

Cut the bread on the diagonal into slices that are about 1 ¼-inch thick, but don't slice all the way through. The, rotate the bread, and cut it crosswise to create 1-inch diamonds, being careful not to cut all the way through.

To fill the bread, separate each crevice, and fill it with the onion mixture and the shredded cheese. When you have used up all of the filling, wrap the bread in foil, and bake for 20 minutes. Then, remove the foil, and bake for 5 more minutes. Pull it out of the oven, and the bread is ready to serve.
