If there is one thing our kids love, it’s garlic bread. (And when I say love, I’m talking “dance-in-the-kitchen-and-kiss-my-legs-while-I-cook” levels of love.)
This is a very good thing, because I’m nuts about garlic. (In fact, I’m starting to crave it as I type this, so it’s probably going to be a short post…)
You can clearly buy garlic bread in the freezer section at the grocery store…but it’s expensive and horrible for you. So why would you do that? I can whip up my garlic bread recipe in the time it takes for water to come to a boil and pasta to cook, so I might as well make the good stuff, right?
Super Simple Cheesy Garlic Bread
- 1 loaf of italian or french bread from the bakery aisle (I like Garlic Parmesean from Walmart)
- 1 stick of butter at room temperature (not margarine, BUTTER)
- 3-5 cloves of garlic
- 1/4 cup Grated Romano or Parmesan (the good stuff, not the junk in the green can)
- 1/2 – 1 cup of shredded mozzarella
Mince your garlic as finely as you’re able. Then use a fork to mix it and the grated Romano into your butter. Slice your bread about 3/4 inch thick. Spread with the butter mixture (I go pretty light, I can do an entire loaf with the recipe listed here…but if you love butter, you’ll want to double the recipe.) Top with grated cheese and pop into a preheated oven at 450 degrees for 6-8 minutes.
