Cheesy Garlic Bread

This is a secret recipe—but I’ll share it with you all! 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.

She called it “hot cheese bread” but I always call it “cheesy garlic bread” when I’m describing it. Although she shared the recipe, she would always tweak it just a little each time she made it, so the recipe she gave out wasn’t exactly the same as the one she would use when she made the dish.

I’ve been inspired by that story to tweak this dish a bit when I make it too. I’ve come up with some fun variations, but the recipe below is my favorite way to make this cheesy garlic bread by far.

Additional Toppings

One of the ingredients that always stands out to me when I make this garlic bread is Salad Supreme seasoning. If you haven’t tried it before, it’s a seasoning mix from McCormick that you can get at Walmart or any grocery store. I like the blend of flavors, but I also love the sprinkle of color it adds to the bread.

A few more things you can add to this cheesy garlic bread include sliced tomatoes or thinly sliced basil—both would also taste great. You could even add some pepperoni to it and make it into a cheesy pizza bread—yum!
