The Easy Cheesy Garlic Bread Recipe

One of my favorite things about this cheesy garlic bread is that it only takes a few minutes to make.

You don’t have to make bread from scratch for it to be delicious, just grab a loaf or two from your grocery store or local baker and start from there.

What cheese is best for Garlic Bread?

This is a little tricky because there isn’t just ONE cheese in my opinion. For my cheesy garlic bread I like to use:

  •  mozzarella cheese
  •  cheddar cheese
  •  Parmigiano cheese

This is the perfect mixture for cheesy garlic bread.

How do I Make Cheesy Garlic Bread?

Cheesy garlic bread is an easy recipe when you are making it with already fresh-baked bread from your local baker.

I just grab my loaf, butter, olive oil, and cheese about 10 minutes before I plan to serve dinner.

What recipes do I serve cheesy garlic bread with?

I don’t know about you, but I don’t usually need an excuse to eat a warm and fresh loaf of bread. Let alone a garlic and cheese bread that is fresh from the oven. But if you are looking for a few good recipes to serve with your cheesy garlic bread, consider:

  • lasagna rolls
  • Italian meatballs
  • oven baked chicken

Easy Steps for Cheesy Garlic Bread

Take the bread and slice it through the middle, creating two long pieces.

Once the butter mixture is ready, take a brush and brush it over both halves of the bread.

Take all of the cheeses and mix them together well. Cover each loaf with the cheese mixture as completely as possible.
