Cheesy Garlic Bread is a popular side dish that is often served with Pasta Dishes and this recipe will be one of the best you have ever had!
Just like most garlic bread recipes, this one is made with French Bread and some freshly minced garlic but also includes a few creative ingredients.
I like to use a combination of parmesan and mozzarella cheese when making garlic bread. I absolutely love cheesy garlic bread.
The other "special" ingredient is black olives. I know it sounds weird but believe me, it's delicious. Kinda loosely reminds me of my English Muffin Snacks.
💭 Ingredient Substitution
You can also use a fresh loaf of Italian Bread instead of French Bread. Regardless of which one you use, you will love this side dish!
💭 Recipe Tip
Make sure you use freshly minced garlic instead of pre-minced jarred garlic for maximum flavor. And always use the freshest loaf of bread possible.
This recipe is best served hot straight from the oven so make sure you time your baking accordingly.
