Everyone needs a great Cheesy Bread Recipe! This is the bread everyone will ask you to bring over and over again! Start with store bought bread and spread on the butter and cheeses. Bake not broil to heat all the way through, for the best bread ya ever had!
We call this ‘Mike’s Cheesy Bread’ around here. “Who’s bringing Mike’s Cheesy bread”?
Our friend Mike is a fabulous cook, and enjoys feeding the people he loves. That’s a lot of lucky people! How his beautiful wife Sharon stays so slim is a mystery to me! He makes tons more complicated recipes than this one, but for some reason, this one stuck. My apologies to the chef..we know your advanced cooking skills are better than this easy bread…but man, this is good stuff Mikey!
How to make this Easy Cheesy Bread Recipe
A simple combination of butter, cheddar, parmesan, garlic and oregano is spread upon a store bought loaf!
We used a loaf of sourdough but we have made it on regular french bread and the results are just as fabulous!
Simply mix all your ingredients together and slather (an under appreciated culinary term) the stuff on the bread! This baked bread browns up beautifully and heats all the way through rather than a broiled version.
What kind of cheese should I use ?
- Mike uses sharp cheddar and parmesan. Pretty simple but when combined they go boom!
- You could easily substitute any cheese you have around like gruyere, swiss or mozzarella to bring on the cheese pull!
PRO TIP: If the brand of butter you use stays on the firm side even after bringing to room temp, simply microwave for 10 seconds to soften it up.
Lets assume you want something served along side this bread…although I can tell you from experience it is a fine meal on its own :). Here are a few ideas:
If you don’t have your own Mike…at least you can have his bread!
