Stuffed Garlic Bread

Family Favorites


This is my favorite way to make garlic bread. It doesn't take any extra time and it looks really impressive on the table. This recipe is for garlic bread, but use it as a jumping off point to fill with any combination of cheese, onion... anything that you like!

I have made one stuffed with provolone, asiago and pepperoni slices as well as one made with pepper jack cheese and green onions.

Have fun with it and make it your own!

2Slice round loaf 3/4 of the way through being careful not to cut all of the way through, vertically and horizontally, forming 1" squares.
3Add olive oil or butter to a small pan and saute garlic for 1-2 minutes, just to soften.
4Brush onto loaf being sure to get in into all of the cracks.
5Stuff cheese inside all of the cracks. (If you like pepperoni, you could add that, too.)
