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.

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!

    are you using a french stick, meaning Baguette or a wide big french stick like the itakian bread??

  2. Can you freeze the leftover cheese spread?

  3. <
  4. Anybody ever try to prep this in advance? Thinking I could spread it on the bread, refrigerate overnight, and then bring to room temp and bake just before dinner. ???

    • While I have only tried the recipe as written, I think it would work. Let us know how it turns out if you try it!

  5. I used garlic powder instead of salt. Great recipe. So easy and quick!

  7. I was wondering how much a “stick” of butter is where you are. I’m in Canada and our butter comes in a block of a pound I believe it is
