Cheese Bread


Peanut Head makes this A-MAZING Cheese Bread that I looooooove. Sometimes I beg him to make it for me. The Barefoot Contessa taught him how to make it, and I remember the first time I had it at her house. It was the day I knew I was going to make her my Mother-in-Law, it's that good.

Then she told me the secret ingredient was mayonnaise, and I had to rethink that whole marrying her son to get to her table thing. In the end, I decided to just pretend the mayonnaise wasn't there so I could enjoy myself properly. You really can't even taste it. Trust me. I'd be gagging on it if I could taste it. I loathe mayonnaise.

The recipe is super simple, and you can make it with any kind of cheese you want. Often we just make it out of whatever we can scrounge out of the fridge. Like if we had tacos the night before and we still have shredded cheese, we'll use that and just supplement with whatever else we can find. Then we'll dig around in the freezer for french bread that's been buried. Of course it's better if the bread is fresh. It just depends on how desperate you are.

If you're suspicious, halve the recipe and just give it a try. I promise, you'll love it. Unless you don't like bread, then I'm going to have to tell you the same thing I tell people that don't like chocolate . . . you're a freak.

Come one. Give it a try, won't you?

  3. Oh my! I loathe it too. I make stuffed garlic bread like this for hubby once, he swore there was no other as good as I am in the kitchen...so I guess good cheesy bread should be offered on match.com, kind of a green room teaser :)

  8. Have you tried it without mayo? I'm Jewish, so really wasn't raised with much of the stuff. Strangely, I didn't develop a fixation and crave the stuff; I pretty much can't stand it either. But cheese and bread? That's a recipe for success. PS: I'm just as judgmental about those who don't like chocolate. It just doesn't compute. And white chocolate is just dumb.

  11. Thanks Jill, I really love those recipe cards, I can't get enough of them, I was wondering if I could get your permission to copy your recipe card or cards on my blog for the ladies in my church, I'm in charge of having a recipe for them each month, and I taught instead of me making a copy they can go to your blog and they can make a copy themselves, I will have a sample of what it taste like and then they can choose to make a copy or not, so I don't have to waste paper. thanks Yvette

  16. I have a recipe called Elephant Bowl that is similar except that it calls for a little more ingredients...IT'S AMAZING!!! I got it from a card off of elephant garlic that I got from the grocery store. Wow, is all I can say. My husband and I stood over our stove and ate the whole thing one night.
