    Chef Itchy Monkey's Note:

    This was inspired by SaraFish's Incredibly Delicious Cheese Garlic Bread Spread (highly recommended). I've adjusted a few ingredients and transformed it into a make-ahead recipe that you can keep on hand in your freezer for a quick side to spaghetti, etc.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 12


    large p ...

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Split sandwich rolls in half lengthwise and set aside.
    2. 2
      Place peeled garlic cloves into food processor and pulse a few times to mince.
    3. 3
      Add softened butter, garlic powder, black pepper, and half of the cheese. Process mixture until smooth and fluffy.
    4. 4
      Spread generously onto each sandwich roll. Place rolls face up on a large baking sheet. Sprinkle remaining cheese onto the rolls, pressing down to make it stick. (note: you can process all the cheese with the butter, if you want. It works either way.).
    5. 5
      Sprinkle rolls with dried parsley.
    6. 6
      Cover and freeze until firm, then store in sealable freezer bags.
    7. 7
      When ready to bake, take out the number of frozen rolls you want to serve, and bake at 450°F for about 7-10 minutes until cheese is melted and lightly browned around the edges.

      I had enough of a baquette in the freezer which I knew I could slice up and make for tonight for us but will look forward to making the Make-Ahead method. With the baquette I slice it to suit and toasted the sliced on each side under the grill/broiler (we like the bread crunchy not soft) and then proceded using a sharp cheddar cheese (would loved to have added fresh parmesan but I'm the only one who really likes it) but have just realized I forgot the parsley. Thoroughly enjoyed thank you Chef Itchy Monkey, made for ZAAR Cookbook Tag.

      This bread turned out beautifully, thanks for another OAMC recipe to add to my collection. I just have to say when I made this it was used straight away so I made another lot and froze them. Have just used them frozen to the oven and they worked out really well. This is such a handy recipe and all my family love it.

      These turned out really good. It's so handy to know that I have garlic cheese bread ready whenever I need it. They reheat without getting soggy from the butter or overly crunchy from the oven. After freezing them on a cookie sheet, I wrapped them each separately in plastic cling wrap and then put them in a ziploc bag to make sure that the toppings stayed where they were supposed to in the freezer.
