Introduction: Easy Garlic Bread and Cheese

Picture of Easy Garlic Bread and Cheese

I LOVE the garlic bread and cheese from Pi**a H*t, but find the garlic bread you buy from supermarkets pales in comparison so I invented my own recipe which is so easy to make and everyone who's tried it says its even better than the huts!

Ingredients needed:

French bread
Tube of Garlic paste (or fresh garlic peeled and crushed)
Extra virgin olive oil
herbs (parsley or mixed herbs - whatever you fancy)
Cheese grated (mozzerella or chedder - again whatever you fancy)

Step 1: Select and Prepare Your Bread Slices

Cut your bread sticks into thickish slices diagonally and arrange on a tray (I cover the tray with foil for easy clean up afterwards).
liberally sprinkle olive oil on the slices and put under a hot grill.

Step 2: Prepare the Garlic Butter

Right - while the bread is toasting, its time to prepare the garlic butter.
Choose a microwave safe cup or ramakin, put some butter or marg in it and zap it in the microwave for about 30-40 seconds.
Then squirt in a helping of garlic paste (or your peeled and squashed garlic cloves - use a garlic press) and some herbs.
Zap it again until all the butter/marg has melted nicely.

Step 3: Butter Up Your Slices

Your bread should now be nicely toasted, remove the tray and flip your slices.
Add a good teaspoon of the butter/garlic mix to each slice, stir the mix well as the garlic tends to sink to the bottom.
Once all covered, return the tray to the grill to toast the other side.
If you don't want the cheese, once the slices have toasted they are ready... for cheese, read on!

Step 4: Cheese It Up

The final step is to add your favourite cheese topping and melt it again under the grill.
I like to add a light sprinkling of herbs on top of the cheese for appearance.
Once the cheese is all melted and bubbling - its time to dish them out and collect the thanks of those you share them with.

Let me know if you try this and enjoy them.

awang8 (author)2009-09-21

I just made this with french toast, freshly crushed garlic, dried parsley and lots of extra-virgin olive oil. I sprinkled it with cheese before it went into the oven. YUM! I didn't use butter, but it still tastes better than that expensive stuff from Pizza Hut (known as "value").

awang8 (author)2009-08-08

*sniff* I think I can smell garlic bread just by looking at the pictures.

Kaiven (author)awang82009-09-17

Pre-invented smellovision i think.

You don't have to block out Pizza Hut; the way you tell the name can let people know what you're trying to mention.

Like lets say oh yeah I'm using a Duracell battery. Maybe people like Energizer. Better blur it out. It's okay. Don't worry.

Very very hungry, and this didn't help. Or maybe it did. I needs me some garlic bread now. Good instructable.

Last time I checked, you needn't censor yourself. People talk about Home Depot, Advance Auto Parts and such all the time on here. Interesting 'ible, looks like lots of calories :p

003mi6 (author)guitarman63mm2008-09-25

Yea but calories = energy same with fat its all just in proportion on how much you eat

robbyt1961 (author)guitarman63mm2008-09-23

yeah - it's not one to do if your watching your waist line, goes great as a side dish to a spaghetti bolognese

istinkles (author)2008-09-25

GRRRRRR. I want to make this now but I already ate dinner and it's 9pm. TOMORROW. :]

vailo (author)2008-09-25

AAUGH... That looks so good. and the fact that I'm hungry now...

goman114 (author)2008-09-22

a great place to get french bread is Jimmy Johns... you can buy their "day old bread" for $.50 or something like that... and it's delicious!

robbyt1961 (author)goman1142008-09-23

I've found that even day old french bread which I would normally throw away works just fine for this, I thhink the bit of olive oil in the first stage really freshens it up.

Cereleste (author)2008-09-22

Wow, that looks amazing, I'm drooling all ready.

ravebot (author)2008-09-22
