Easy Cheesy Garlic Bread
Easy and SUPER Cheesy Garlic Bread can be served as an accompaniment OR as a dish all on its own!
I ask you, is there anything better than a good piece of garlic bread? YES! There’s regular garlic bread, and then there’s THIS Cheesy Garlic Bread. Soft on the inside, CRISPY on the edges, with the perfect cheese/butter/garlic ratio.
With the rising popularity of this Creamy Roasted Tomato Basil Soup recipe, a lot of you guys have been asking me for my Cheesy Garlic Bread recipe that I had photographed in that post.
Without further ado, here it is.
Here we have the BEST cheesy garlic bread you will try in this lifetime.
The perfect amount of garlic and butter together gets smeared all over your bread before anything else hits it. Then, a faultless blend of two cheese: mozzarella and parmesan, is sprinkled all over the top.
Now, I normally make this bread in single serve quantities using regular sourdough slices, only because its what we usually have on hand (as you can see in this Tomato Soup post). However, since a lot of people have been asking me for a recipe, I decided to test my recipe on a loaf (I used a wide baguette), just to make sure the quantities stay the same.
If you’d prefer my single serve recipe, I’m more than happy to post it up! Just let me know in the comments and I’ll see what I can do. (Woe is me, more garlic bread to eat.)
So much buttery goodness! ↘︎
Cheesy Garlic Bread
There’s regular garlic bread, and then there’s THIS Cheesy Garlic Bread! Soft on the inside, crispy on the edges, the perfect cheese/butter/garlic ratio.
- 14 ounces (400 grams) loaf French bread, ((or Italian), sliced in half horizontally (lengthwise))
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, (softened)
- 6 cloves garlic, (finely chopped (or 1 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic))
- 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, (finely chopped )
- 1/4 teaspoon salt, ((or to taste))
- 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1/2 cup finely shredded parmesan cheese
- 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley,
Preheat oven to 200°C | 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (baking paper), or foil. Arrange bread on baking sheet, cut-side up.
In a small-sized bowl, combine together the butter, garlic, fresh parsley and salt. Mix ingredients together until well blended. Evenly spoon the garlic butter mixture evenly over both bread halves right to the edges. Top with the cheeses and sprinkle with the dried parsley.
Bake, uncovered, for 20 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Broil for about 2 minutes, or until the top is golden and crispy.
Slice and serve warm.
