An oldie, but a goodie! I love ordering cheesy garlic bread when we go out, but it’s even better homemade! Yes, it’s bad for you, it’s a lot of carbs going in, but can’t a girl live a little?? I would not make this every night, but it sure is a great complement to any Italian meal. (Have you tried our homemade Alfredo sauce yet?) I love that it is a crispy, cheesy delight on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. It is quick and easy to make and will dress up your meal!
Here they are right before going into the oven….yum!
CHEESY GARLIC BREAD
- 1 loaf of French Bread
- 1 stick butter, softened
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 cup Shredded or Grated Parmesan Cheese (1/2 cup per side)
- Shredded Mozzarella Cheese – no need to measure, enough to cover
- 1 teaspoon dry Parsley flakes
- Salt and Pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Soften the butter in the microwave then add 1 teaspoon of garlic powder. Mix together well. Cut your bread in half the long way and spread the butter and garlic mixture on top. Take the Parmesan cheese and sprinkle on top of both halves. Then cover with the mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle dry parsley flakes on top and salt and pepper to taste. Cook for 13-15 minutes, or until edges are browned and cheese is melted. Remove from oven and slice bread horizontally for serving.
