This Garlic Cheese Loaf does not disappoint.
Garlic Cheese Loaf
(Recipe adapted from unknown source by me)
1 loaf crusty bread (Think sourdough. The denser the bread, the better.)
Garlic Butter (made by mixing together the following)
- 1 1/2 sticks butter
- 3 tablespoons Tastefully Simple Italian Garlic Bread Seasoning (This is where I am going to tell you it is important to use this seasoning. The blend contains garlic, onion, parsley, bell pepper, chives, and more. This is what makes the Garlic Cheese Loaf.
2 cups shredded Mozzarella
Melt garlic butter. Cut the bread on a diagonal - both ways. You'll want to cut so that you are nearly through the bread, but don't go through the bread. Use your fingers to open each crack and fill drizzle with butter. Use up all the butter. If some drips on top of the bread, that's OK! Next fill the cracks with cheese. Again, your end result may look messy, but once it's baked, it'll look perfect. Wrap the bread with foil and bake for 15 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Unwrap bread and bake for an additional 5 minutes. Serve immediately.
I served this bread with soup. It would also pair well with any type of Italian dish or a pot roast or on it's own. We had some leftover and stored it in the fridge. When eating with just warmed it up a bit in the microwave...still amazing.
