You know it’s the holidays when in the middle of baking cookies, your doorbell unexpectedly rings and you’re left standing there with a big (fake) smile on your face, but really you’re thinking “Oh no. I have nothing for them to eat!”
Well don’t worry, I’ve come to your rescue! This is something which can be whipped up in 15 minutes: 7 minutes (yes, very precise) to prep your ingredients, and another 7 minutes in the oven and then a minute to slice and serve! And this is sure to be a crowd pleaser, I can’t even begin to tell you how many times people ask me to make this garlic bread.
Cheese Garlic Bread
Recipe adapted from: One Lovely Life
1 loaf of bread, can be a french loaf, but I find that ciabatta has the best results
2 green onions, sliced
1/2 cup mayonnaise
5 tbsp softened butter
2 cloves garlic, crushed
3 cups grated cheese (I use the store bought, pre-grated mixture of cheddar, Colby and Monterrey Jack)
1/4 tsp black pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Half your load lengthwise. Roughly slice your green onions. Soften butter in the microwave for 10-20 seconds.
Now that all the ingredients are prepared, combine the green onions, butter, mayonnaise, crushed garlic, pepper and cheese in a bowl. Make sure it’s fully combined.
Spread evenly over both halves of bread, and pop in the oven for about 5-7 minutes. Or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
Allow to cool for a minute or so, and slice bread into 1 1/2 inch pieces. Serve immediately!
This is seriously the best garlic bread, and whoever you serve it to will be completely smitten!
Hope this holiday season is treating you all well,
