Those of you who read my post on Whole Wheat Carrot Muffins
, know the lovely Louisa of Living Lou
. I was assigned her blog for this months SRC
. She has so many treats lined up that I couldn’t help making another one. You already know how much I love garlic. My Garlicky Baked Potato Wedges
and Easy Garlic Rolls
are a testimony to that. So when I say this Cheese Garlic Bread, I knew I had to make it, and there was no to ways about it. I’ve made garlic bread before, but nothing like this. I’ve never used mayo in it. I was curious and wanted to see how it would turn out. I had a few slices of white bread that had to be used up so I just used those. This Cheese Garlic Bread is my new favorite. I think the mayo makes it yummier somehow, I don’t know how, it just does. The spring onion lends it a mild flavor that is so different from the other cheese garlic bread versions around. I really like it. The only thing i did differently was increasing the amount of garlic, which I still found a little subtle. The next time I’m going to step the garlic further up a notch than mentioned in my adaptation of the recipe. If you can’t deal with too much garlic, you don’t need to do that.
Anyway, I urge you to try this out. Make it for your family and friends, they’ll love you even more for it. 😉
Cheese Garlic Bread
Adapted from: Living Lou
Makes 12 pieces
6 slices of bread
1 spring onion, sliced
1/4 cup mayonnaise (I used Homemade Mayonnaise)
2 tbsp. softened butter
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped (I’ll probably use 3 or 4 cloves of garlic next time)
1 – 1 1/2 cup grated cheese
Freshly crushed black pepper, to taste
Preheat the oven to 170ºC.
Mix the onion, mayo, butter, garlic, cheese and pepper in a bowl till well combined.
Spread this mix on the slices of bread and bake for about 5-7 minutes or until the cheese has melted and is bubbly.
Take it out of the oven immediately and allow it to cool for a minute. Cut the slices of bread into two and serve immediately.
