I don’t usually have the urge to bake something, because I am not big in baking. However, when I spotted Lauren’s Latest Hasselback Garlic Cheesy Bread on Pinterest (please follow my boards), I immediately saved the recipe. The next day, I went to the market and got all the ingredients and made these most amazing, cheesy, garlicky, and yummy garlic cheesy bread. They were so good that my picky eater 3-year old ate all three of them as his afternoon snack, supper, and breakfast the next morning. And he asked me to make more!
You might think that this garlic cheesy bread is hard to make, but you’re wrong. It’s actually quite easy, but it does take some time because of the proofing of the bread dough. But that means, in between the active time, you can grab a cup of coffee or iced tea, head out to your patio or backyard, just chill out, read a magazine, and soak up the warm summer weather out there. That was exactly what I did when I made the bread.
To make this hasselback garlic cheesy bread, I also made some homemade garlic herb butter, which I used it for this recipe, and saved some for my pasta. It was fun making everything from scratch and I did feel a great sense of accomplishment when the bread came out from the oven. The smell of garlic, cheese, and warm bread filled my kitchen and home. I sank my teeth into the warm, fluffy, soft, and cheesy bread, and felt so contented especially when my son enjoyed my hard labor of homemade bread so much.
If you don’t want to make the bread dough from scratch, you can easily cheat with store-bought frozen bread dough for a quick fix. Try it, I am sure you will love this recipe.
