This delicious cheesy garlic bread goes super fast at our house. I make a whole, 20 inch loaf of french bread and there is rarely anything left. If you are lucky enough to have leftovers, warm it for a few seconds in the microwave and pile it high with shaved ham, beef or turkey. The bread makes wonderful sandwiches for the next day.
My daughter loves this bread, but I haven't told her that it contains mayo--something she insists she doesn't like. I just told her it has cheese and butter with a little seasoning and she scarfs it right down. I don't condone the lie but my daughter has been having to try a lot of different foods these days as I make different recipes--many that don't get posted here because they don't taste good. She is getting pretty suspicious. If she reads this, I know she's been checking out my website.
-1/2 cup butter, softened
-1/2 cup mayonnaise
-1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
-2 teaspoons minced garlic
-1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning (a mix that you can find in the spice aisle)
-1/8 teaspoon seasoned salt (I use Lawry's Brand)
-1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack, Mozzarella or Munster cheese (I use whatever white cheese I have on hand and it always turns out great)
-1 loaf french bread (about 20 inches), halved lengthwise
In a small mixing bowl, blend the mayo and butter until it's smooth. Mix in the Parmesan cheese, garlic, Italian seasoning, and seasoning salt. Stir in the shredded cheese.
On a large, ungreased cookie sheet, lay out your bread, open side up. Spread cheese mixture on the open sides. Bake at 350 degrees for about 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted. Slice and serve.
