Cheesy Garlic Bread

Pin It

I don't think there's anything more important than girl time. And family time. And alone time. And gossip magazines.

Every Thursday I have all my girl friends over for dinner, wine and Grey's Anatomy. Since we are all so busy with other things going on in our lives, having one designated day per week to make sure we get together and catch up is crucial. It's one thing I know I can look forward to each and every week.

Our usual line-up for dinner is pasta with meatballs, salad, bread and wine. Lots and lots of wine. Instead of the usual garlic bread last week, I decided to switch it up and make some cheesy bread this past week. It did not disappoint! The mayonnaise adds a little tang, and there was a perfect amount of cheese and garlic to make it a delicious, gooey mess. Enjoy!

Printable Recipe


  • 1 loaf French bread
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 tsp. garlic, minced
  • 1 cup reduced-fat Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 2 cups reduced-fat Mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise (I used light)
  • 1/2 cup scallions, chopped

Put broiler on high. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

While the oven is heating, slice the bread in half. Melt the butter in the microwave (about 1 minute) and mix in the minced garlic. If you're using the jarred garlic, you can add in a little of the juice for some extra flavor. Spread the butter mixture over both slices of bread.

Place bread on the baking sheet and put under the broiler for 2 minutes or until light brown. Keep an eye on it because it will brown quickly.

Once done, remove from the oven and preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 

Mix the cheeses, scallions and mayonnaise in a small bowl. Spread over top of the bread slices. When the oven is done preheating, place the bread back in for 7-10 minutes or until cheese mixture is bubbly and begins to brown.  Serve immediately.
