Loaded Italian Bread

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Lvs2Cook

Another one of those recipes that you can change up to fit your likes -- including using a different bread. It's almost a meal in itself but goes well with pasta and beef and it's definitely NOT low calorie. I found the recipe in a community cookbook a few years ago.

I altered the recipe a bit, but it turned out great. I used reduced-fat cheddar cheese and garlic powder rather than garlic salt (we%u2019re trying to cut down on fat and salt where possible). I also used chopped green onions because DH did the grocery shopping and decided they were the same as chives. (sigh) Even with all those changes, the bread came out perfectly.

  3. Put the bread spread side up on a cookie sheet and broil until edges are browned and cheese is melted being careful not to burn it.
