Cheesy Garlic Bread

Cheesy Garlic Bread is soft on the outside, crispy and golden on the outside and loaded with garlic and 2 kinds of cheese. Makes a great addition to any meal.

Cheesy Garlic Bread- lots of butter, mayo, garlic, and cheese make this bread insanely delicious!

I love to serve Cheesy Garlic Bread with Cream Cheese Lasagna, Spaghetti Casserole and One-Pot Ziti with Sausage.

Ingredients Needed

  • Loaf of French Bread– Italian bread can be substituted.
  • Salted Butter– salted butter adds more flavor but you can use unsalted and add a few pinches of salt.
  • Garlic Cloves– I use 3 to 4 minced cloves.
  • Garlic Powder– A little garlic powder accentuates the flavor of the fresh garlic.
  • Salt– the addition of a little salt enhances the overall flavor of the garlic bread.
  • Italian Seasoning– Dried oregano can be substituted.
  • Mozzarella Cheese– packaged shredded mozzarella is fine for this recipe.
  • Parmesan Cheese– either freshly shredded or the kind that comes in a green can works for this recipe.

How To Make Spicy

If you want to make your garlic bread spicy, add 1/2 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes.

Cheesy Garlic Bread Recipe Tips

For easy clean-up, line your baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper.

For a stronger cheese flavor, replace 1/2 cup of the mozzarella cheese with cheddar cheese or swiss cheese.

Make Ahead and Storage

The bread can be prepped up to 8 hours in advance. Spread with the butter mixture and top with cheese. Wrap with foil or plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to cook.

Leftovers will keep for 3 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator and can be reheated in a toaster oven or air fryer.
