I am so sorry - I haven't posted all summer! I have been enjoying family I have been cooking. I have been cooking some of our family favorites - The World's Best Snack Mix, Scotch-a-Roos, Everything Cookies, Monster Bars, Pasta Salad, Homemade Pimento Cheese, Some Great Pasta, Cucumber Salsa...etc. You also have to try the easy overnight Cinnamon Roll recipe I posted around Easter. I love them (especially with pecans)! I just haven't taken the time to be as creative. I have also been trying to eat more low carb - not as much fun. I will try to share a few new low carb recipes when I have a a few to share.
However, this Cheese Bread isn't low carb. I guess it would be if I scraped the top off with a fork. And - I have been known to do such a thing!
My girls loved it. We even heated the leftover slices in the toaster oven the next day! Yummo!
1 loaf of French Bread - sliced in half lengthwise
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup mayonnaise
2 - 3 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup grated Parmesan Cheese
1 1/2 cups of another flavorful cheese - I used sharp cheddar but Monterrey Jack looks prettier
Cut the bread in half length-wise and place on a cooking sheet. Mix the softened butter, mayonnaise, minced garlic, and cheeses. Add a little Italian seasoning for color and flavor. Spread the mixture evenly over the bread. Sprinkle with more Italian seasoning. Bake at 350 for 8 - 10 minutes. I like to broil 2 or so extra minutes to get the bread nice and brown on top.
*You could add olives, green onions, pepperoni or even a different cheese to make a few different varieties
