On very special occasions, Chris and I will venture to The Keg Steakhouse for dinner. Our absolute favorite thing on the menu is their garlic cheese bread. I know, right? Going to a steakhouse mainly for their cheese bread...but this bread is good. I mean really really good. I mean highly addictive good. After devouring it one night, I figured out that their secret ingredient was mayonnaise. Ok, ok.. so it's not healthy, not even close, but it's garlic CHEESE BREAD.. it's suppose to be fattening and absolutely bad bad bad for you! Anyway... I went home and tried to duplicate it as best as I could. I was very pleased with the outcome. It's creamy and garlicky and wonderful! (Sorry I didn't get a picture of it cut, you'd be able to see all the creamy goodness, but I was hungry, I didn't want to wait..try this and you'll understand!)
Garlic Cheese Bread
1/2 a loaf of french bread, split into halves horizontally
3 Tablespoons butter, softened
3 Tablespoons mayonnaise
1 large or 2 small garlic cloves, pressed through a garlic press or minced
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup shredded monterey jack cheese
1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
parsley, dried or fresh
Preheat the broiler of your oven.
Mix butter, mayo and garlic together. Spread half the mixture on the cut side of the bread and place bread on baking sheet. Broil until the bread is just starting to turn golden brown (keep an eye on it, not not let it get too toasted). Remove from oven, spread the rest of the butter mixture on top of the bread, sprinkle with cheeses and return to oven (you can always add more cheese if its not cheesy enough for you). Broil until the cheese has melted and the top is bubbly. Sprinkle with parsley. Cut into slices and enjoy!
