Monday nights are special nights for me. We don't get together every Monday anymore, but Monday nights will always hold special memories for me. We make dinner, watch some TV, talk, and laugh. One of my favorite meals over there is spaghetti. We make a box of pasta, a jar of sauce, and this garlic cheese bread. It's simple and so comforting, and truthfully it hits the spot in a way that homemade sauce just can't. I'm a foodie, but I love some childhood comfort food! While I'm usually a proponent of grating your own cheese, this bread works best with packaged cheese. It also works great with fake butter if you like that kind of thing! I normally just spread and sprinkle on until it looks good, but I measured this time if you're a recipe follower. Over time, you'll learn what works best for you. We've found that this bread works best if you bake it instead of broiling. This way, all of it gets nice and warm and melty instead of just the top. Also, we think that the prepackaged Mexican four cheese blend (cheddar, monterey jack, asadero, and queso blanco) works best. It's melty and stringy without being rubbery.
Garlic Cheese Bread Recipe
Print this recipe
1 loaf French bread
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 cups Mexican four cheese blend
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Split the loaf of French bread lengthwise. Spread the butter on both halves. Sprinkle the garlic powder on top (if you don't like a lot of garlic, use less than one teaspoon). Sprinkle the cheese on top until covered everywhere.
Bake for 8-10 minutes until the cheese is thoroughly melted.
To cut it without burning your hands, use a fork to hold the bread still while you cut with a serrated knife.
