One of my favorite things to eat is cheesy bread.
My favorite has got to be Little Ceasar’s Italian cheese bread…soft, cheesy, and hot-off-the-oven cheese bread is my ultimate indulgence.
Not the pizza, but the cheese bread.
However, ever since we move to our current place, Little Ceasar is at least 20 miles drive away so it’s hard to have my fix as often as I wanted to.
So when I chanced upon this easy cheesy garlic bread recipe on Crunchy Creamy Sweet, I know I’ve gotta make it since it practically takes 20 minutes.
What’s more, I can cheat with a store-bought Italian bread and just turn the plain bread into what I really wanted to eat.
This is definitely one of the easiest ways to make cheesy garlic bread, and there is no kneading involved.
Slice your favorite Italian bread lengthwise, brush the surface with lots of melted butter, sprinkle some garlic powder and bake.
After 10 minutes, sprinkle loads of mozzarella cheese and then bake for another 10 minutes and voila, you have the most amazing, cheesy garlic bread that’s absolutely delicious.
Oooh la la, so good!
This easy cheesy garlic bread will definitely be a favorite and I am going to keep this amazing recipe from Crunchy Creamy Sweet for good, thank you!!
