Copycat Cheesy Garlic Bread

Can we talk about how it’s only two days away until Christmas? The month of December and the year of 2017 have flown by so fast. So many exciting events have happened this year. I can’t wait for what 2018 has in store for the blog. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all!

May I introduce you to the best bread in the world. Cheesy Garlic Bread. This stuff is super gooey, lightweight, yeast-free, cheesy, crumb-less bread. Way back in 2006, I really liked Red Lobster cheesy appetizer bread(and I still do.) But the only problem is that I can’t visit Red Lobster all the time. Otherwise, I would go every single day and just have appetizers. (I know, I have a problem.)

This sweet roll is phenomenal! It’s facile to make and really tempting to eat the whole loaf in one sitting. The aroma is honey, delectable, ambrosial, appetizing, and mouthwatering and it just makes you want to eat the whole loaf before anyone else can even taste a crumb.

I stumbled on this recipe almost by accident. There is a book called The Backyard Homestead by Carleen Madigen and she has a recipe entitled Easy Quick Bread. That is the base of this delicious cheesy garlic bread. The only thing that differs between the garlic bread recipe and her recipe is that she wrote the recipe with no time limit on the bread, only that the bread is done when the tester comes out clean.
