Cheesy French Bread

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Nimz1466

This is a little different from the usual Garlic French breads I've tried. I served this to my daughter for her 28th birthday dinner tonight. I changed the original recipe up some to fit our taste buds. Original recipe from Paula Deen's The Lady & Sons, Too cookbook.

Soooo delicious!!! My favorite cheesy bread recipe from this point forward. Love the Italian seasoning and crushed red pepper...really gives it a nice flavor. I used Mexican shredded cheese and mozzarella cheese with sliced French bread.

  1. Combine the cheese, mayonnaise, Italian Seasoning, garlic powder and ground red pepper.
