Recipe: Cheesy Garlic Bread

by Elizabeth on March 29, 2011 · 4 comments

in awesomeness, breakfast and breads, recipes, watch me bake

These are so good.  I can’t even describe how good these are.  So I’m not going to spend time trying to describe them to you or tell a witty little story.  I’m just going to tell you to put these on your menu and make them ASAP.

Cheesy Garlic Bread
Print this recipe!

  •  1 loaf of French bread dough, made through the first rise (I recommend either this recipe or this one)
  • 1 stick of butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons garlic bread seasoning (see below)
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Grease a 12 cup muffin tin with cooking spray.

After you have made your French bread dough, allowed it to rise, and punched it down, roll it out into a rectangle, about 18-20 inches long and 6 inches wide.

Combine softened butter and seasoning together.  Spread all over the dough rectangle.  Make sure it reaches all the way to the edges.  Evenly sprinkle with cheese.  Roll up jelly-roll style (from the long end of the rectangle).  Cut the roll into 12 equal slices; dental floss or a really sharp knife is best for this.  Place one roll into each greased muffin cup.  Cover and set aside while you preheat the oven to 350.

Once the oven has preheated, bake the bread muffins for 18-22 minutes.  You should watch them very closely for the last 5 minutes as the cheese tends to burn.  You may need to loosely cover it with foil to prevent this.

These are best eaten immediately so you can enjoy the cheesy goodness!

Garlic Bread Seasoning

  • 1/4 cup powdered Parmesan cheese (like the kind by Kraft)
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley

Mix all ingredients together and place in small container.  Seasoning mix should be stored in the refrigerator and can be kept up to 6 months.
