Hot Cheese Bread Recipe

Hot Cheese Bread

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.
