Garlicky, buttery, cheesy bread

Posted by

Trust me when I say, it’s amazeballs. I made this last month with some tomato bisque (I’ll post a recipe for this later) and thought this would make an awesome accompaniment. And I haven’t posted enough recipes for you to figure this out about me, but I freaking love garlic…and cheese…and butter…so…yeah, this just works.

Also, I think this recipe is really versatile! You don’t have to stop at cheese and garlic butter, you could make it a bread stuffed pizza too, right? I’ll have to try it out myself.

This is also great if you want to take it to a potluck as picky food.


  • 1 loaf of sourdough or crusty bread (not cut), hell, make your own if you’re so inclined (sourdough bread recipe soon to come)
  • 3/4 cup of mozzarella cheese
  • Garlic butter (mix all these ingredients together and stir thoroughly)
    • 1 stick of butter (yeah, 1/2 a cup), melted
    • 2-5 cloves of garlic, crushed
    • 1 tsp salt
    • 1 tablespoon of fresh (or dried) parsley, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Cut the bread on a diagonal to create a diamond patch across the bread. (See picture below for detail)
  3. Use your fingers to drizzle the garlic butter all along the crevices.
  4. Stuff in a pinch of cheese into each crevice.
  5. Wrap with foil and bake for 15 minutes.
  6. Unwrap the top foil and let it bake.
  7. Turn on the broiler for another 3-5 minutes or so until cheese gets brown and bubbly.
  8. Serve this immediately, or close to. It isn’t as delicious when the bread goes cold.
