How To Make Cheesy Bread

  1. Cream together butter and cream cheese.
  2. Add the cheddar, parmesan and mozzarella cheeses.
  3. Season with garlic powder, add fresh parsley and mix.

The Best Cheese to Use

Go for fresh, flavorful cheeses that complement the richness of the butter. Cream cheese is the foundation here and then cheddar, parmesan, and mozzarella are added and thoroughly mixed in.

If you want to experiment and love different types of cheese, go for it! Use whatever types you love!

How To Reheat Cheesy Bread

  • Oven – To reheat cheese bread in the oven, place cheese bread wrapped in aluminum foil in a preheated 350˚F oven. About ten minutes should do it.
  • Microwave – Place cheese bread on a dampened paper towel and heat up to thirty seconds. The steam from the damp paper towel will soften the bread.

How To Store Cheesy Bread

  • Keep cheesy garlic bread in a zippered bag or an airtight container at room temperature. It should keep about four days.
  • If your cheese bread gets stale, simply cut it into cubes at bake in a 350˚F oven until they are crispy. Voila! Croutons!
  • Make some extra cheesy bread mixture and keep in the refrigerator for about a month. You can use it on biscuits or dinner rolls, too! Why not put a scoopful over freshly boiled pasta or a baked potato! There are so many options!
