Yum, this cheesy garlic bread is divine. The cheesy center inside the soft warm bread is drenched in melted garlic butter. The outside has the perfect crusty texture. This will become a family favorite for you too! The Test Kitchen

How to Make 3 Cheese Garlic Braid


  • 1Mix warm water, yeast, brown sugar and olive oil until yeast is dissolved.
  • 2Add bread flour and salt to form a dough.
  • 3Cover in oiled/greased bowl and let rise until doubled in size.
  • 4Turn dough out onto a floured surface. Kneading isn't really necessary with this dough. Roll out into large rectangle.
  • 5Slice each side with a sharp knife so each side has strips.
  • 6In a small bowl, melt butter and garlic in the microwave.
  • 7Fill with cheeses. Pour garlic butter into cheese with a spoon to get as many garlic pieces into the cheese mixture. Reserve enough garlic/butter mixture to brush the top of the bread with.
  • 8Fold end up over cheese mixture and braid your pieces from side to side to close. Fold final end up over cheese and last 2 dough strips over to seal.
    Place on greased sheet, cover with a clean towel and let rise for 15 minutes.
  • 9Brush with remaining garlic butter.
  • 10Bake in 350 degree oven for 20-30 minutes until starting to get golden on top of bread. Once baked, brush with plain butter, slice, and serve!
