Three Cheese Garlic Bread

Sometimes when you have pasta for dinner, you just want a thick slice of bread to soak up all that extra sauce. I know I do, and I usually wouldn’t mind that bread to be covered in a glorious amount of cheese. Three cheese garlic bread could pair with just about any simple pasta dish. In the summertime, it would also be lovely with a big fat Greek salad.

The garlic-cheese mixture took me less than 10 minutes to mix up, and since we’re using pre-baked bread, it was fresh out of the oven in 15 minutes. There are also very few ingredients involved, making this my simple side-dish staple. You don’t need to add any herbs, since we are using focaccia bread. Focaccia is similar to an Italian pizza crust, and often comes pre-seasoned with herbs and seasonings. There is also no added salt in this recipe. You get enough of a salty flavor from the feta cheese, which pays a wonderful compliment to the Monterey Jack and Parmesan.

Next time you see a loaf of focaccia bread, pick it up and try it out! You will not be disappointment by the combo of cheesy, garlic and Italian herb flavors.

     

Mix together some mayonnaise, room temperature butter and minced garlic (4 cloves at least) in a medium sized mixing bowl. Blend in the sliced green onion, feta, Monterey Jack, and half of the Parmesan.

Spread that cheesy mixture all over the top of a 10-12 ounce loaf of focaccia bread. Focaccia is my favorite type of bread to use for garlic bread because it has similarities to a flavored pizza crust, without being overpowering. Plus it’s flat, which makes spreading the cheese on top much easier. If can’t find focaccia, use a pre baked pizza crust or even 2-3 pita rounds.

Bake at 375 for about 15 minutes, or until the cheese is golden. Let it cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.
