Cheesy Garlic Broccoli Bread

Monica H


I was staring inside my freezer at the pounds of frozen broccoli I had and wondered what I could do with it. Looked on top of the fridge and noticed half of loaf of Italian bread that would probably expire in two days. Scrounged around for cheese and decided to toast this up and it was DELISH! Very easy and quick and yummy!

  • 1 slice
    thick bread (i used unsliced italian bread)
  • 1 tsp
    olive oil
  • 1 c
    broccoli (i used frozen)
  • 1 tsp
    garlic powder
  • 1 c
    mozzarella cheese (or any other cheese which melts well)

How to Make Cheesy Garlic Broccoli Bread


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Spread olive oil on one side of bread. Sprinkle with garlic. Place in oven for 2 minutes just to toast and harden the bread a bit.
  3. Wash broccoli and DRY WELL. Wet broccoli would soak the bread into mush. I used frozen broccoli...washed it frozen and then let it dry out. Then I used paper towels to squeeze out the extra moisture.
  4. Place a bit of cheese on bread. Then layer on the broccoli and cheese, ending with cheese on top.
  5. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until broccoli is soft and cheese is melted.
