I’m a huge fan of The Pioneer Woman. I watch her show on the Food Network whenever I have time. I’ve made quite a few of her recipes and they have all been delicious. A few weeks ago there was an episode where she made cheesy garlic bread. It looked so good and so simple to make.
Last night I was making potato soup and wanted something to go with it. The cheese bread episode popped into my head and I thought it would go perfect with the soup. I, however, couldn’t remember the exact ingredients and I didn’t have time to go online to find the recipe. So I made up my own concoction based on The Pioneer Woman recipe. And may I just say…It was AMAZING. Probably the best garlic cheese bread I have ever had. I only made a small batch since there was only 2 of us eating. Here is how I threw it all together:
2 Slices Sourdough Bread
Handful of Sharp Cheddar Cheese
Handful of Mozzarella Cheese
A Few Shakes of Lawrys Garlic Salt (probably about 1-2 tsp, divided in 1/2)
1 tsp Basil
2 T Butter, melted
2 scoops Mayo (about 1/4 cup or enough to bind other ingred. together)
Melt butter and add 1/2 garlic salt then brush over slices of bread. While you are letting the butter soak in, mix together both cheeses, rest of garlic salt, basil and mayo. Spread cheese mixture over both slices of bread. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 10-15 minutes or until cheese is melted. Then move rack close to broiler and broil on HI for 5 minutes or until cheese is golden and bubbly. Remove from oven and cut into slices. Enjoy!!
By the way…My son absolutely will NOT eat mayo. But he never knew that I put it into this recipe and said it was the best cheese bread ever. You really can’t taste the mayo, it is just to bind the ingred. together.
