Garlic Cheesy Bread is by far the fastest and easiest thing to make to go along with any meal. Or even just by itself!
Making this bread is topped with a lot of garlic…and cheese, of course!
Mix 6 cloves of chopped garlic and 2 tablespoons of garlic spread (or garlic powder) into 10 tablespoons of very soft, unsalted butter.
Spread on top of cut french bread.
Put in the oven on the middle rack and set on BROIL at 450 degrees. Toast the bread until it just starts getting golden on the top and edges.
Top with 2 to 3 cups of grated mozzarella cheese. Don’t be shy about covering all the way to the edges! Sprinkle some parmesan cheese and then some more garlic spread.
Pop back into the oven. But this time, lower the broil temperature to 400 degrees.
Pull out of oven when the cheese starts to bubble and turn golden.
Cool down for a few minutes and cut into pieces.
I promise you won’t stop at just one piece!

Thanks, Sunni! I try to resist walking past the french bread loaves at the store all the time…but I always end up bringing one home and doing this to it!
