This Hot Cheese Bread is a delicious appetizer. I also like to serve it as a side to pasta dishes. The topping is so creamy and cheesy and complements the crispiness of the broiled bread. Chilling the bread before broiling is essential – don’t skip that step. It gives the onion and garlic flavors a chance to blend in just right.
How the Secret Recipe was Exposed
My husband got this recipe when he was a young man serving an LDS mission in California. He met a woman there that was not only kind to the missionaries, but also enjoyed cooking for them. She liked to keep her recipes a secret, but he persuaded her to let him take home a few of his favorites, and this is one of them. Although she shared the recipe, she would always tweak it just a little so the recipe she gave out wasn’t exactly the same as the one she would use when she made the dish. That being said, I don’t know what she could have added that would make this Hot Cheese Bread any better.
Add an Additional Ingredient for Extra Color
I did add one ingredient that I love when I am making garlic bread or breadsticks, and that is Salad Supreme seasoning. I like the blend of flavors, but I mostly love the sprinkle of color it adds to the bread.
Hot Cheese Bread
Mix cheese, butter, mayonnaise, onions, and garlic together.
Divide mixture in half and spread on the two halves of French bread.
Place bread halves on cookie sheet and chill for 30 minutes.
Broil bread in oven on high for 3-5 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly and the bread starts to brown.
Serve hot right out of the oven.
