I was looking at some recipes on a blog called Butter and Oven Mitts and found a cheese bread recipe that sounded really yummy! I made a few small changes–I used extra cheese (the more cheese the better, I say) and a loaf of French wheat bread instead of regular French bread, just because I like to eat wheat bread whenever I can. It turned out great! I love cheesy breads and they’re the perfect thing to serve with salads and soups. This would also be good served with Three-Bean Veggie Chili or Chili from The Pioneer Woman. Here’s my version of the bread if you want to try it…
EASY, CHEESY GARLIC BREAD by NancyCreative, adapted from Butter and Oven Mitts
- 1 loaf of unsliced French Bread (I used a 13-oz. loaf of French wheat bread)
- 4 Tablespoons butter, softened
- 1 1/2 teaspoons Italian Seasoning, divided
- 1 1/2 to 2 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese
- 3/4 to 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese (not the grated kind)
- 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoons garlic powder
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice bread in half lengthwise and place the two halves, cut side up, on a baking sheet. Spread butter on cut surfaces. Sprinkle with half of the Italian seasoning. Top with Mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese. Sprinkle with the garlic powder and remaining Italian seasoning. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until cheese is melted and starts to brown slightly. Cut crosswise into 1 to 2-inch pieces, and serve warm.
I never get tired of eating garlic bread! Do you have a favorite recipe for that?
