cheesy garlic bread

This bread is fantastic. At home I make it with heavy meat dishes like ribs or a roast. It also goes perfect with pasta dishes. Well to tell you the truth, this bread is just oooey gooey good anytime you are in the mood for it. I haven't done this but it would be perfect as just an appetizer served with pizza sauce (meaty pizza sauce). It goes great with beer, too! Make it and Enjoy! 

Cheesy Onion Garlic Bread Recipe


1 loaf of French Bread
1 and 1/2 sticks of butter
2 teaspoons garlic powder (or minced fresh garlic)
1 medium to large onion, sliced paper thin and some randomly chopped into smaller bits
10-12 oz. swiss OR mozzarella cheese slices or a combo of both (which I do)
1 1/2 teaspoon poppy seeds
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard


1. Sauté onions in butter until almost transparent on low-medium heat. Add garlic powder, poppy seeds and mustard. This can take 5-7 minutes. 

2. While onions are sautéing, score (use a bread knife and cut into the bread almost to the bottom) bread diagonally on a cutting board. Then turn bread and score diagonally again so you have a diamond pattern. Place on top of a large piece of aluminum foil.

3. Check onions. If onions are soft. Turn off heat and just let pan sit on stovetop. If not done, let it continue to cook on low. 

4. Stuff cheese slices into EVERY little slit on the bread. Feel free to add more if you want. Some slits can even have double cheese.

5. Drizzle the hot onion mixture over top of the bread. Make sure to cover everything!

6. Wrap in foil and bake at 375 F. for 15 minutes. Unwrap slightly and bake another 10 minutes to crisp the top...serve and love!

Kitchen Tips: 

1- I listed many up above so if you still have questions feel free to message me on social media where you found this recipe or email me at cafescrapper @ gmail . com

2- I've made this bread without onions (not the same but it tasted great). So if you don't want the onions just melt butter really well and add spices and just continue rest of the recipe as is. 

3- Have fun with the recipe and make it yours. Try different cheese, try different seasonings, use different breads, etc! Modify this recipe and make it suit your dietary needs being gluten free, dairy free, vegan, etc. Don't look at a recipe and say I can't eat that...make it into something you can eat. Have fun cooking. 

4- Again it is great with a heavy meat meal like ribs. But we've been loving it as an appetizer and goes great with beer!
