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! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make 3 Cheese Garlic Braid

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix warm water, yeast, brown sugar and olive oil until yeast is dissolved.
  2. Add bread flour and salt to form a dough.
  3. Cover in oiled/greased bowl and let rise until doubled in size.
  4. Turn dough out onto a floured surface. Kneading isn't really necessary with this dough. Roll out into large rectangle.
  5. Slice each side with a sharp knife so each side has strips.
  6. In a small bowl, melt butter and garlic in the microwave.
  7. Fill 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.
  8. Fold 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.
  9. Brush with remaining garlic butter.
  10. Bake 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!
