Bread is cheesy, garlicky, and buttery on every piece. Cheese and garlic herb butter on homemade bread.
As a novice baker, I rarely desire to whip up a batch of sweets.
While browsing Pinterest (please follow my boards), I found Lauren’s Latest Hasselback Garlic Cheesy Bread and immediately bookmarked the recipe.
The next day, I baked these delicious garlic cheesy pieces of bread from scratch, using only the freshest ingredients from the market.
My 3-year-old son devoured all three of them as an afternoon snack, dinner, and breakfast the next day because they were so delicious.
And he requested me to produce even more of them!
Despite what you may believe, this cheesy garlic bread is not difficult to make.
Because of the bread dough’s proving time, it’s actually pretty simple.
However, this means that you may take a break from being active and enjoy a cup of coffee or iced tea on your patio or backyard while the sun is shining and a magazine is cooling off.
Exactly what I did in the breadmaking process.
I made some homemade garlic herb butter to use in this recipe and some spaghetti sauce with the remaining butter.
Making everything from scratch was a lot of fun, and baking the bread made me feel accomplished.
Garlic, cheese, and fresh bread permeated the air in my kitchen and throughout the rest of the house.
As I savored the warm, fluffy, soft, and cheesy bread, I couldn’t help but smile, knowing how much my kid appreciated my efforts in making it.
It’s easy to use frozen bread dough for a quick fix if you don’t have time to create it from scratch.
Try it. I’m confident you’ll love it.

- ASPARAGUS WITH LEMON PARMESAN BREADCRUMBS
- CHICKEN TIKKA MASALA PIZZA
- CHALLAH BREAD
- BEER BREAD
- HAM AND CHEESE BUNS
- 1/3 pound shredded cheese you prefer
- 3/4 cup garlic-herb melted butter
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup warm water
- 3 cups bread flour
- 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
- 1 tablespoon honey
- olive oil for greasing surfaces
- Use your mixer’s dough hook attachment. Stir in warm water, yeast, and honey for 5 minutes at a low speed. Salt and flour should be added in 1/4 cup increments once the yeast begins to bubble.
- After five minutes of kneading, your dough should be able to pull away from the side of the basin and seem clean. Poking it should leave nothing on your fingers but a slight sticky feeling.
- Your dough should be allowed to rise for an hour or until it doubles in size in a greased bowl.
- As many as six to eight meals can be made from the dough. Baguettes should be the length of a cookie sheet when formed into long baguette shapes. Twist each dough ball to prevent shrinking and maintain its size. Allow rising for 30 minutes before removing the plastic wrap.
- The oven should be preheated at 400°F (204°C), and the dough should be placed near the stove to keep it warm.
- Take off the plastic wrap from the dough, lower the oven temperature to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (176 degrees Celsius), and bake the dough for 20 minutes.
- After 20 minutes in the oven, remove the loaves of bread and brush them with the melted garlic herb butter. Continue baking until the bread begins to brown. Cool for 15 minutes after removing from the oven.
- Slice the loaves into 1-inch slices about 3/4 of the way through. Fill each piece with cheese and brush each slice with garlic butter. It’s done when the cheese is totally melted after another 5 minutes in the oven. Serve right away.
- Use my recipe to create the garlic herb butter at home.
