Easy Mozzarella Cheese Garlic Bread Recipe

I am convinced I could write an entire cookbook with different recipes and uses for Italian and French bread.  The options are endless, and all you have to do is put out bread and butter and it’s guaranteed everyone is going to be reaching for a taste. This loaf was on sale today and I brought it home with plans to turn it into something marvelous.

How to Make the Best Mozzarella Cheese Garlic Bread Recipe

  • Ingredients you’ll need to make homemade Mozzarella Cheese Garlic Bread: One large 16 ounce loaf of Italian bread, butter, garlic salt, garlic powder, onion powder, dry Italian seasoning, grated Parmesan cheese and sliced Mozzarella cheese.
  • Kitchen gadgets you’ll need: Mixing bowl, sharp knife and chopping board, cheese grater, large baking sheet for baking the garlic bread.
  • This gooey bread is super simple to make. Simply cut on the bias along the loaf, then switch directions and cut again to the opposite end of the loaf.  Voila. Diamonds appear and are ready to be stuffed with cheese and seasoned with Italian spices and grated Parmesan cheese.
  • You can serve this bread as an appetizer with warm marinara or pizza sauce for dipping. It’s equally delicious when served along with a meal.  The choice is completely up to you.
  • It’s a terrific “communal” activity when you’re entertaining as it tends to be an ice breaker when people are sharing a dish. The more gooey the cheese the better. You can even add more, if you like. At our house, cheese is similar to chocolate in there’s no such thing as too much. Ever.
  • Store leftover Mozzarella Cheese Garlic Bread tightly wrapped chilled in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Cut into desired size sections and reheat gently in the microwave in single servings.

  1. Melissa, love your recipes as usual. I have a request. When I print your recipes I am not able to get the little photo in the top right hand corner to print! It makes it so much nicer to have the photo. Could you please make it a printable photo? Sure would appreciate it. Thanks. Sandy

    1. Hi Sandy, I’m delighted you’re loving them! If you want a picture, you may need to use the print icon at the top of each page with the share buttons instead of the recipe template at the bottom. There isn’t a setting I can change to allow you to get that thumbnail photo, sorry.
