My Last Bite

Do you ever think about what you would want your last meal to be? Or your last bite? Sometimes I think about what I wold want to include in such an important meal, I am sure it would include a delicious steak, that is so juicy and tender it melts in my mouth...it would also include some type of dark, rich and decadent chocolate...one thing that I know would for sure, without a doubt, have to be there would be bread. and not just any bread but more than likely gooey, buttery cheese bread.

For as long as I can remember for family get togethers, week night meals around the table, and church potlucks my mom or grandmother always would bring the most delicious cheese bread. It was a crowd favorite for sure, and everyone always begged for the recipe.

This was the kind of bread that was so good you would think about it the next day, and raid the kitchen to see if there were leftovers. I mean it is seriously that good. And let's be real, I love cheese, and I love garlic...and hello, I love bread. I could never go gluten free because of my huge love for bread and carbs...I LOVE them y'all. (how many times can I say love in a blog post?)

So I decided to share this recipe with you all today because I am not one to hoard an awesome recipe, and this is just that...AWESOME. And you need to make it like tonight, and take some to a friend. It goes perfectly with everything, but this week we paired it with some yummy creamy tomato basil soup (copycat of Panera) and I am sharing the recipe for that over at My Cooking Spot today so be sure and stop by so you can have a complete meal! 

cheesy garlic bread spread, to die for buttery goodness! So popular around our house!

CHEESY GARLIC BREAD SPREAD

INGREDIENTS:
1 loaf French Bread, sliced in half lengthwise
1/2 cup melted butter
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1 1/2 cups cheese (Monterrey Jack works best, but you can use almost any kind)
4 green onions, chopped and divided in half
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
*you can also add herbs like Italian seasoning or something similar if you would like

DIRECTIONS:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine butter, mayo, cheese, half of the green onions, garlic powder, and salt. Stir well to combine. Take your loaves of bread and spread the cheese mixture generously over each half. (make sure every inch of the bread is covered). Top with green onions. *Also, from time to time my mom would add black olives on top...I am not a fan of olives so I skip this

Wrap loaves of bread loosely in foil. (I spray my foil with non stick spray). Places loaves on a sheet tray, and place in the over for 15-20 minutes. Remove foil, and then place in broiler until lightly browned and bubbly on top (watch carefully, this happens fast).

Cheesy Garlic Spread...easy, buttery, and delicious. Such a crowd pleaser side!!!



As you can see for the soup I made these into slices, but I usually keep the loaves whole and then slice the halves to serve that way. I promise you will love this, how could you not?!

And don't turn your nose up at the butter, cheese, and mayo...life is short, and this is not one of those recipes you serve every night...it is a fun indulgence every now and then! :) 

So enjoy it and try it alongside my creamy tomato soup for a match made in carb heaven! For real though...they are a perfect pair.
