Mmmm....this cheesy garlic bread is delicious!! Did you know that when you buy a loaf of French bread from the bakery at the grocery store they will slice it for you? Maybe I am the last one to know, but it is awesome!!! My bakery will slice it half lengthwise(like I did for this recipe) or into slices. Since I have found this out, I have had many loaves of French bread sliced for French toast. I think it is especially great for crusty bread, since crusty bread seem to send crumbs everywhere when I slice it at home!
I have other pictures of this cheesy garlic bread on my computer, but for some reason my computer is having issues and won't let me load them. I thought....I'll just wait until tomorrow to post this recipe when my computer figures itself out....but then I thought.....haha....then that would mean next week or maybe next month. SO, this will have to do for now and maybe I'll add more pictures when/if I figure my computer out :)
Cheesy Garlic Bread
1 loaf French bread, cut in half lengthwise
8 ounces of cream cheese, softened
1-2 teaspoons of crushed garlic...I used 2. If you don't LOVE garlic, you may want to use less
1-2 cups of assorted cheese...I used a mixture of Provolone, Monterrey Jack and Mozzarella
Directions: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix the softened cream cheese and crushed garlic together until mixed very well. Add in the assorted cheese 1/2 cup at a time, until you can't mix in any more :) Spread mixture onto each half of French bread. Cut each half into slices. Place each half of French bread onto a piece of tinfoil and push up against edges of bread, as seen in the picture above. Place both halves of French bread onto a baking sheet and bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese is melted and starting to brown on top. Serve with something yummy to dip it in....soup, marinara, alfredo sauce, salad dressing, etc. :)
