The Easiest Cheesy Garlic Bread

The Easiest Cheesy Garlic Bread Recipe

  After posting a few quick and easy recipes this week, I started receiving emails from my readers letting me know how much they appreciated the quick and easy recipes. I now realize that most of us have one thing in common, we are all looking for a quick and easy homemade meal that does not require us to slave in the kitchen for hours. Fortunately, that’s kinda my style. Although I do love to bake and cook I try to keep everything simple and easy with as few ingredients as possible.

The Easiest Cheesy Garlic Bread Recipe

I’m one of those type of people that used to think you don’t need a recipe for garlic bread because it’s so god darn easy. After a few bad incidents, I stand corrected, order to make really good garlic bread you need to have the perfect mixture of butter and olive oil. Adding too much butter can make the bread dry and adding too much oil leaves it soggy. I used a mixture of butter and olive with a ratio of 2:1 butter to olive oil.

This recipe is super simple and can be put together in just a few minutes. You basically mix all the ingredients in a small bowl and spread on the bread, then top with cheese and place in the oven for 5-8 minutes. The end result is AMAZING! just imagine the flavors of the garlic and butter mixture, with the gooey cheese, and crunchy bread. This is by far the easiest recipe ever.
