I believe that in order to stick to a healthy eating plan (I don’t think the word diet is positive) it is important to be realistic. No one wants to never have chocolate cake again, or divorce ourselves completely from our favourite cocktails, as what would life be without any indulgence? To make staying on track easier and more enjoyable I am proposing that we all have a “cheat day” ONCE a week. This way we have something to look forward to and we will not go insane in the absence of sweet and/or salty treats.
This garlic bread with cheese recipe is so good that just thinking about the first time I made it makes me smile. Garlic bread is one of those things that are so simple to make but if it isn’t made properly it can be extremely anticlimactic. The bread needs to have a crusty outer layer while remaining moist on the inside and the garlic must have presence but not stomp all over your taste buds. Now when you are deciding to add cheese you are attempting to graduate with a PhD instead of a Masters, since you have to choose the type of cheese wisely, one that it melts perfectly and you must ensure that all your flavours are balanced as the expectations are now even higher. I recently discovered Muenster cheese, my local supermarket had it on its shelves and I am always keen to try a new cheese, it turned out to be a great cheese for melting and retaining it’s essence. If the cheese on your garlic bread is not stretching as you tear off each slice then I am sorry but that is a fail, epic in fact.
Luckily for you I have conquered the recipe for the best garlic bread with cheese and you can jump into the accelerated course here at Theyummytruth.com. This garlic bread is perfect for a cheat day or to just enjoy with your friends and family. I wish I could have some now but I’ll have to wait till Sunday, which is my chosen day of leniency.
Start by cutting your bread into slices before spreading butter generously and stuffing it with cheese. You know you are stuffing the cheese properly because the bread will bend slightly.
Look at those brown bits and the oozing cheese, you know this is the real deal.

- ½ baguette (about 6 inches)
- ¼ cup garlic parsley butter
- Muenster cheese, sliced 1oz
- 1 oz shredded 6 italian cheese blend
- Preheat oven at 400°F.
- Wet hands and pat bread so that it is damp but not soggy, this will make sure the crust gets crispy.
- Cut slices, but not all the way to the bottom, spread butter and insert a slice of cheese and grated cheese. You know you are stuffing the cheese right because the bread will bend slightly.
- Bake 10 mins wrapped in foil and 5 mins uncovered.
