Oh my goodness.
Do I have an artery clogging recipe of deliciousness for you.
The first time I had this garlic cheesy bread was in the summer... at my sister-in-laws... at my nieces 8th grade graduation party.
A neighbor brought it over.
I was totally smitten. Smitten, people. I mean, I am a sucker for bread and cheese. Cannot pass either of them up.
After tasting deliciousness, my mother-in-law started making this, like, repeatedly. I swear we had this bread with three dinners... in a row... while we were staying there.
I then made it for my family when my girls and I vacationed in California. Everyone LOVED it.
I've finally gotten around to making it for the blog. Throw caution to the wind and just make it. Will you, please?
I know it's fattening. I know. Just make it every so often. It will be hard though, because I guarantee this...... YOU WILL BECOME ADDICTED.
Simple Garlic Cheesy Bread
- 1 Cup Mayonnaise
- 1 Stick (1/2 Cup) Butter, Softened
- 1/2 Cup Shredded Parmesan Cheese
- 2 Cups Shredded Mild Cheddar Cheese, Divided
- 5 Cloves Garlic
- 4 Sprigs of Green Onion, Diced (Optional)
- 2 Large Loaves Crusty French Bread
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees (F). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper, set aside.
In a food processor, pulse the mayo, butter, parmesan cheese, 1 cup of cheddar cheese, and garlic cloves until well combined.
Cut both loaves of french bread in half length wise. Divide the mayo cheese garlic mixture between the garlic bread, spreading it on the "cut" side of the bread. Place the halves of bread onto the baking sheets (two on each). Bake for 10-12 minutes, remove from the oven and divide the remaining cup of cheddar cheese and sprinkle on top of the bread. If using green onion, sprinkle that on as well. Return to the oven for another 3-5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.
Slice into 2-inch (or larger!) pieces and serve warm.
