Garlic Cheese Bread

Total Time:
25 min
Prep:
15 min
Cook:
10 min

Yield:
4 servings
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 3 1/2 cups grated Cheddar
  • 3/4 cup grated Pepper Jack
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 cup (real) mayonnaise
  • 1 1/4 sticks softened butter
  • 4 whole green onions (white and light green parts), minced
  • 1 dash salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 loaf crusty French bread
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Mix the cheeses with the mayonnaise, 1/4 stick of the softened butter and the green onions. Add the salt and pepper to taste and set aside or keep in the fridge until you need it.

Melt the remaining 1 stick butter in a skillet over medium-low heat and add the garlic. Cook for a couple of minutes to release the garlic flavor.

Cut the loaf of bread in half. Brush the garlic butter over each half, making sure it's evenly distributed. Spread the cheese mixture on the loaves and bake until the cheese is hot and bubbly, about 10 minutes.

Once out of the oven, sprinkle over the chopped parsley. Slice and serve.

Amazing and easy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is SO good, it's our new favorite garlic cheesy bread!! It is a heart attack waiting to happen, so just gauge the qty on each ingredient to your liking, you really cannot go wrong. I cut down the amount of mayo and butter (used just enough to spread easily, which really doesn't require much). I also used half the amount of cheeses. I have in the past made the spread and froze it, then defrosted by an hour before use. I have made it several times for a large crowd... it was definitely a crowd favorite!! I usually have this along side Tyler Florences " Spaghetti and Meatballs" recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very cheesy! I didn't use pepper jack. Cleaned out the fridge and freezer using parmesan, mozzarella, sharp and mild cheddar. Baked for 15 minutes at 375. Then broiled on high about 8 inches from the heating element for about 3 minutes. Served with the Baked Chicken Spaghetti. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was good but to greasy for my family and I. item not reviewed by moderator and published
can this recipe be made ahead and frozen? item not reviewed by moderator and published
I read several of your posts about being too rich. I have a small family and almost always have to cut the recipes down to fit our needs. So this is what I did. I loaf of French bread instead of baguette, has more bread which will hold the richness and the cheeses in this recipe. I melted 4 tablespoons of real butter and minced in 2 garlic cloves over low heat. Cut my bread in half and then lengthwise. Used a brush and brushed on the garlic butter. Then I took 2-3 handfuls of shredded Monterey jack and sharp cheddar cheese and mixed in it with 1/4 cup of (Dukes light) mayo and 3/4 of a stick of real sweet cream butter. Added a few dashes of Italian seasoning. Then slathered it onto the bread.. The cheese mixture melts quickly so wait until about 10minutes before serving/plating to put into the hot 350 degree oven. Excellent. item not reviewed by moderator and published
So yummy! Love this so tasty and easy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
recipe added the 1 stick of butter for the garlic melt and 1/4 stick for the mayo blend. everything else is correct except temp. should be 350 (not 375) and bake 20 - 25 min. (not 10 minutes) . I use 1/2 stick of butter and 2 garlic cloves for my garlic melt and that is enough for one full bread. It's just right. hope this helps. thanks Ree item not reviewed by moderator and published
love this recipe but the format that has changed sucks!! printing is a disaster. why the change? hard to find what one is looking for recipe is 5 stars format is 0 item not reviewed by moderator and published
If anyone is having trouble with this recipe, I'll tell you what I do. I mix 1/4 cup softened butter, 1/2 cup mayo, garlic, and cheese and spread that all over the bread and then broil. Those of you who are saying there is too much butter... don't melt it and then pour it on the bread and then put MORE butter on..... item not reviewed by moderator and published
On tv and on the video with the recipe she used 1/2 stick (4TBL) of butter IF you double the recipe and make 2 loaves. The recipe is for 1 loaf and the amount of butter should be 1/4 stick or 2 TBL. of butter. The rest of the recipe appears to be correct. Food network is becoming too much work, not only with a lack of accuracy but the outrageous printing and no amount of complaining seems to change any thing! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Delish, but rich! I made this last year after viewing the episode. Printed the recipe, made the bread, got raves and requests for the recipe. I copied more recipes off the site and handed them out. Last night my precious granddaughter requested the recipe as her hubby won't eat regular garlic (even with cheese) bread anymore. I didn't look for my old printed recipe, but went to this site and again found the recipe and looked for the "print" tab/button. No, there's not "print" button/tab anymore, so, I had to highlight the parts of the page I needed and print that. I printed page 1 of 10! It's a mess and has LAYERS of writing at the top! A mess! The same "I.T." people "fixing" the Affordable Care Act must have put this new view/site together. Anyway, it's delish, but rich, so a little goes a long way. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This bread is absolutely delicious and always a big hit. Was asked to make for New Year's Eve. As fast as I put it out it goes... Love this recipe... item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought this turned out very good! Rich and flavorful. I did not put the full amount of cheese mixture on the bread, I saved it for bread later on in the week. I'm going to try the olive bread next, yum! Thanks Ree item not reviewed by moderator and published
I did not like this. It was so greasy and oily. I was bummed because I was so excited to make this when I saw the show. I will say that I'm annoyed about the inconsistency of the show and this recipe here. Anyway, I did halve this recipe, but it was just to oily. I'm a butter and cheese maniac, and this was just too much for me. No one in my family liked it, and we are not picky people. We threw it away. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This bread could be eaten alone as an appetizer or snack. My husband loves it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I gave this three stars because while the flavor is wonderful, the quantities of cheese, butter and mayonnaise are just too much for one large french loaf. As others have commented, it was incredibly rich - to the point of flat out greasy. I think you could easily use two loaves of bread for this recipe and it would be great. Or, obviously, cut the cheese mixture and melted butter in half when using one loaf. Also, I think the pepper jack or even a Mexican cheese blend would be better than the cheddar at that quantity, given cheddar can be very oily when melted. I wanted to love this, as I do many of Ree's recipes, but it was just too much...of almost everything. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this again for Labor Day. Twice. I managed to save the heel of the bread for myself before it disappeared. YUM!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this bread for a crowd of mostly teenagers and it was a huge HIT!! The cheese mixture could have been easily spread among 2 loaves and still been just as good. I will definitely be making this again!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is he best "garlic cheese bread' I have ever had the pleasure to make ! It's such a treat to finally have a nice old fashioned down home woman do a cooking show. One gets so sick, sore and tired of watching a bunch of pompous, self absorbed, try to be chefs that continually make recipes that no ordinary household whether it be American or Canadian would ever have in their pantry ! Thank you Food Network for finally waking up and smell the kitchen..... item not reviewed by moderator and published
I really do love butter & cheese, but I am also glad that I looked at the reviews first. I didn't use as much butter as the recipe called for. I was afraid the bread would just be too soaked. (I can't believe I said that! No matter what, it is a very good thing. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I would just like to say that I enjoy the pioneer woman more than any food show. Such a nice family and fun to watch, and her recipes are all good and simple.. Just real people.. : item not reviewed by moderator and published
Off the Charts Yummy! Every single time I serve this the crowd goes nuts. Really, who wouldn't? The ingredients are like magic together. Who doesn't love rich gooey cheese. I never really follow the measurements any more...you can't screw it up! Mayo, butter, cheese and spices of choice. YUMM item not reviewed by moderator and published
This bread was amazing!!!!! I was kind of distracted while making it and instead of melting the stick of butter and cooking the garlic...I added all the butter together with the cheeses and other ingredients....I guess this is a recipe where you just can't go wrong because it turned out wonderfully! Can't wait to make another batch. Thanks Ree.......love your show! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wow! This bread was amazing; very heavy w/cheese and butter dripping but so good! My daughter thought I had put jalepeno peppers in it; but I used the green onions. That's not a bad idea for next time. I'm glad I read the reviews about the timing as 10 min is not long enough but 25 min is too long. I am not even thinking about the calories and fat in this bread right now! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent item not reviewed by moderator and published
How can one possibly have too much cheese? Never! I made this for company last evening, cutting the pieces into triangles as hors d'oeuvres, and they were a huge hit! I added some extra hot sauce to the mixture and used light mayonnaise, and I confess I cut back on the butter a bit, maybe 3 T in the cheese mix and 3/4 stick for the garlic-infused melted butter. A little sprinkle of paprika on top and bake for 20 minutes (I had no parsley. AND I just finished all the leftovers for lunch: 30 seconds in the microwave and you're good to go. LOVE your show, Ree! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I HAVE to give you 5 stars, Ree...I did it from what you did on the show, didn't look the recipe up online, so not that big of a deal as far as measurements and amounts for us. BUT, I have to give you the 5 stars because my 14 year old son said, and I quote, "Mom. You could broker world peace with this bread." End quote. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Thank goodness for the reviews ! I adjusted the recipe, we loved it! I added a pinch of oregano& basil flakes, put fresh garlic in the cheese mixture, broiled it. Love her recipes!!!!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
What book is this recipe in? Love it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
BUTTER AMOUNT IS INCORRECT! I watched the show and Ree used 1/2 stick of butter for a double recipe. No wonder people are commenting about butter running down their chins. Butter should be 1/4 stick. She also used Pepper Jack and not Monterey jack. She also baked it for 25 minutes instead of the 10 minutes this recipe states. So there are lots of different things in this online recipe compared to the show. I am sticking with the show recipe. (which was great.. I am giving this online recipe a lower score do to inconsistencies in thhe recipe between online and TV episode. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Had this with my own lasagna recipe Sunday, I froze half the loaf for later use, we really liked it but I used pepper jack like on her show, we love butter and if it drips down our chins it's ok by us....lmao item not reviewed by moderator and published
We loved this! If your not a butter & cheese person than this is not for you. I did bake it longer 20 -25 minutes. I also used pepper jack instead of monterey jack, YUMMY! I was not going to use the green onions but I did and I wasn't disappointed! I will make this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this bread for dinner last night. It is really good but I would adjust the butter content next time. When I tried my first bite melted butter literally ran down my chin. I would half the melted butter next time and maybe even softened butter in the topping. The cheese mixture I used was from the recipe and not the tv show but it was really good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Ree, My husband and I made your garlic cheese bread for lunch. We took our first bite and looked at each other and could'nt believe all the wonderful flavors. It's the best cheese bread we have ever had. We love your show, and really enjoy trying your recipes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made this last night with our pasta and it was cheesy perfectness. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Loved the garlic cheese bread. Used her recipe for her sauce for her lasagna and rigatoni ( combined both sauce and added a little extra spice to it and it was delicious . I love her recipes they're so homey. item not reviewed by moderator and published
As my husband said after eating this bread, sometimes too much of a good thing is just too much. That much butter and cheese was just too rich. On the episode where Ree makes this, she does it a little bit differently than the directions here: using Pepper Jack cheese instead of Monterey and Parmesan and brushing the bread with just the butter but leaving the garlic slices in the pan, etc. I followed these directions as written here and paired it with filet and baked potato. I will not be making it again. My two suggestions would be to first omit the 1/2 stick of softened butter in the spread and just increase the mayo a bit to make it spreadable. And secondly to spread only a very thin layer of the cheese mixture on each loaf. item not reviewed by moderator and published
So why only 4 stars?? item not reviewed by moderator and published
But if you loved the recipe, why knock it by giving it only 1 star? It is NOT the recipe you rated here, it was the FN format. It's not fair to skew the ratings for the actual recipe by doing this. Sorry, had to vent...pet peeve of mine. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I agree, I hate the new format for this site. I wish they would go back to the old one, it was MUCH BETTER! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Recipe Rating....not site rating. Maybe people could constructively rate a recipe THEN comment BELOW your REVIEW by tapping the red bubble icon UNDER your review. In this case ...if you hate this site, juzt go to Ree's personal site @ pioneerwoman.com item not reviewed by moderator and published

I do NOT understand what all the fuss is about the print button ... IT'S RIGHT UP AT THE TOP OF THIS RECIPE ... ON THE LEFT SIDE!! Come on people, perhaps glasses are needed? Not trying to be a smart-aleck, but it's right up there in a big RED square!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The button may be there but mine just prints the picture, no recipe.Either that or just half of the recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
no it isn't. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The butter should be 1/4 stick of butter, NOT 1 1/4! FN mistake NOT yours, try again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
If you read the directions, 1/4 stick was for the spread, and the other stick was for the melted mixture with the garlic. item not reviewed by moderator and published
She has the original recipe on her website http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2009/03/garlic-cheese-bread/ It's much better than FN, they screwed up the amounts! I've also made it with a blend of Mozzarella, Gruyère and Parmesan Cheese. It was ridiculously awesome! item not reviewed by moderator and published
