Posted for a quick, weeknight bread, or as a snack. This is delicious, but quick and easy. I came up with this trying to match a bread we get from a local pizzeria/sandwich shop. Close, but not quite!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 16 ounces French bread or 16 ounces Italian bread, halved lengthwise
  • 14 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup Italian cheese blend, Shredded
  • 1 teaspoon oregano, dried

  1. Spread softened butter over the cut sides of the bread. Place on an ungreased baking sheet.
  2. Combine the cheese, oregano and garlic salt; sprinkle over the bread.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Slice and serve.

Made and served with red lentil soup, this was perfect. I used seduction bread from Whole Foods and parmesan cheese. Thanks!

Other than using some garlic powder, made as written, made for a nice addition to last nights meal, White Cheese Lasagna#456149, a great compliment to dinner. Made for Zaar Stars.

Excellent! We loved it. Made as written but broiled a bit at the end to melt cheese and crispy it up. Thanks for posting Breezermom. We will make this again. It is a keeper. Perfect with pasta. Made for Market Tag Feb 2012. Enjoy! ChefDLH
