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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Split sandwich rolls in half lengthwise and set aside.
  2. Place peeled garlic cloves into food processor and pulse a few times to mince.
  3. Add softened butter, garlic powder, black pepper, and half of the cheese. Process mixture until smooth and fluffy.
  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. Sprinkle rolls with dried parsley.
  6. Cover and freeze until firm, then store in sealable freezer bags.
  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.
