Last week, I posted a photo of this bread on my Instagram asking if I should blog about this bread. I have to admit, I was hesitant because this recipe uses a shortcut – a store bought Italian bread. As you may know, I love to bake breads from scratch. However, I am still working on my Italian bread from scratch, hence the store-bought.
How To Make Easy Cheesy Garlic Bread
1loaf of Italian bread
1 and 1/2teaspoongarlic powder(see note)
1cupand 1/2 shredded mozzarella cheese
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Cut the bread lengthwise and place both parts face up on the sheet.
Brush both pieces with melted butter. Sprinkle with garlic powder.
Cover with a piece of aluminum foil and place in the oven.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes.
Uncover bread. Top with cheese.
Place bread back in the oven for 2 to 4 more minutes, to melt the cheese. (see note)
Remove from the oven and place on a cutting board. Let cool for few minutes.
Slice and serve.
Note 1: If you like garlic, you can use more garlic powder – up to 2 teaspoons (1 teaspoon per piece of bread). Note 2: Instead of garlic powder, try dry ranch seasoning mix. It’s fantastic, especially for kids who don’t like garlic! Note 3: We like our cheese so melted that it starts to brown. Watch the bread while melting the cheese and remove from oven as soon as it reaches the desired look. Recipe source: CrunchyCreamySweet.com
