If you know anything about me, it’s that cheese and carbs are my everything. I would be perfectly content munching on a wedge of white cheddar and some really good sourdough for the rest of my life if I’m being honest. I was really craving garlic bread the other night (nothing unusual) as I was making my Seared Red Snapper + Coconut Clam Broth, and decided to whip this bad boy up in a handful of minutes so that I could mop up all the delicious broth left at the bottom of the bowl. This is probably the easiest garlic bread in the world to make and the pull apart cheesiness seriously cannot be beat. Also there are no actual pieces of garlic in the bread itself so your dragon breath will be at a minimum at most.
- loaf french bread (preferably sourdough)
- 8 oz sliced mozzarella cheese
- 4 tbsp butter
- 2 cloves garlic
- chives (optional)
Kitchen Tools: baking sheet, microwave, pastry brush
Preheat oven to 425*F. Use a bread knife to slice about 1/2 – 3/4 inch slices in your loaf of bread, stopping right before the knife hits the cutting board. You want to keep the bread all in one piece, so the bottom crust should still be connected.
Mince garlic and place in a small bowl with butter. Melt butter in microwave and stir to incorporate garlic. Use a brush or small spoon to slather each side of the bread slices with the garlic butter. Place cheese slices in each opening of the bread.
Place bread on baking sheet and bake in oven for about 10-15 minutes until cheese is melted and top is golden. Serve with diced chives.
