Intro

Ever wondered how restaurants keep their garlic cheese bread crispy on the outside but warm, moist, and soft on the inside? If you’ve ever made garlic cheese bread like I have, you’ll notice that it gets completely crunchy throughout, and not very appetizing. After much experimenting, I have found the SECRET of restaurant quality garlic cheese bread, and I will now share it with YOU!

Info

  • Prep: ~30 mins.
  • Cook: ~30 mins.
  • Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 loaf of French bread
  • Butter or Margarine
  • Garlic Powder (NOT GARLIC SALT! GARLIC SALT WILL MAKE THE BREAD A SALTY MESS!)
  • Basil (I prefer pre-dried, pre-chopped basil.)
  • Cheese (As much or as little as you would like. I used mozzarella. Any cheese that would work on pizza would work on this bread, as well.)

Step 1

First, preheat your oven to 550 degrees, Fahrenheit. If it can't reach this temperature, opt for as high as you can get it. The trick here is that you want to have a very high temperature for the bread. It will make the outside crispy, but the inside of the bread will stay moist and soft. Now, cut your loaf of bread in half, like the photo above: Next, cut one of those halves in half. One half will serve 2-3 people. If you need to serve 4-6, use the entire loaf.

Step 2

We want to get the butter/margarine out and spread it evenly on both halves.

Step 3

Okay, that's enough butter.

Step 4

Now, place the bread in the microwave and heat it on high for about 25 seconds. We're looking to melt the butter here, not cook anything:

Step 5

Melted:

Step 6

Now, it is time for my favorite part: cheese! Like I said above, put as much or as little as you want on. I opted for a lot.

Step 7

Covered with cheese:

Step 8

At this point, we're ready to add the garlic powder.

Step 9

Add it to taste. I like a lot of garlic, so I added a lot of garlic. After I put that on, I started with the basil:

Step 10

Okay! We're done! Wait for the oven to preheat fully, and stick that sucker in. It should be done within 10 minutes, depending on how hot you made the oven.

Step 11

The finished product, IT'S DONE!

That was delicious.  It was too long at too high a heat though.  I would recommend 550 F for two minutes.

Better than the keg.
