Recipe Schmecipe: Cheesy Herb Garlic Bread


It’s winter and all you want is comfort food and what better way to get that comfort but from this delicious garlic bread. Eat it alongside a piping hot bowl of chicken noodle soup and hopefully you’ll be all set to brave the crowds on Boxing Day.

So, without further ado, here is the recipe:

Cheesy Herb Garlic Bread

1 loaf of french bread or baguette

5-6 garlic cloves

½ cup softened unsalted butter

3-4 tbsp fresh herbs (basil, cilantro or parsley)

¼ tsp salt

¼ tsp pepper

1 cup shredded cheese

  • Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 400.
  • Mince or grate the garlic into a fine paste. Mix the garlic with softened butter, herbs, salt and pepper.
  • Cut the bread lengthwise in half and spread the butter mixture on both sides. Sandwich the bread back together and wrap the loaf in foil. Place the wrapped loaf onto a baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and turn the oven to the broil setting.
  • Sprinkle both sides of the bread with the shredded cheese. Broil it for 1-2 minutes until the cheese has melted and bread is crisp.

    If I wasn’t lactose intolerant, I’d try this, but lactose free cheese and margarine is yicky!

    I make this often and it’s delicious. Only difference is I add diced up bacon (or real bacon bits work as well), good quality mozzarella cheese and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese. I make it often along side a pasta dish. Keep in mind you can cut up the loaf into small serving pieces. If I recall correctly I get about 8 pieces per half depending on the loaf size. I often wrap the other half of the baguette up (before I add anything to it) and save it in the fridge for another day. If your serving it along with a dish like pasta all you really need is half for a family of 4.
