Loaded Cheesy French Bread

Loaded Cheesy French Bread from FavFamilyRecipes.com This Loaded Cheesy French Bread is the BEST! This is packed full of flavor and the best thing about it is that you can add whatever toppings you want –like a pizza. It is perfectly customizable to your liking.  Just plan to go on a 10-mile run after eating it so you won’t feel quite as guilty… maybe a 15-mile run. Either way… SO worth it! This also freezes GREAT. Just freeze it before baking and it will last you a couple meals. It is the perfect side-dish to the usual rotation-meal spaghetti.

Loaded Cheesy French Bread


  • 1 loaf french bread, cut in half lengthwise
  • 1/2 c. butter, softened (not melted)
  • 2 heaping Tbsp. Mayonnaise (stick with the real stuff, not low-fat)
  • 3 cups Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
  • 1 can olives, sliced
  • 20 slices pepperoni, chopped (again, we like to use turkey pepperoni)
  • 1 c. mushrooms, sliced, then roughly chopped
  • 2-3 green onions, sliced and chopped
  • Any other pizza toppings you like, to taste


  • In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients (except for the bread) using a spatula or wooden spoon.
  • When everything is mixed together really well, spread the mixture evenly over the bread and bake at 325-degrees for about 20-25 minutes or until cheese is melted and bread is slightly crispy. Cut up into individual slices and serve.
  • When we made this we froze half of it before baking and saved it for later. It heats up GREAT after it has been frozen!

      We actually changed the name of it to “French Bread” instead of “Garlic Bread” because there isn’t any garlic in it. Whoops! haha you can sure add some in the mixture though and make it a garlic bread!
