Comfort food comes in many forms. Soft warm bread with melted cheese being one of the the best forms in my humble opinion. This family style Cheesy Bread with Herbed Butter is truly a dreamy side dish!

I chose a soft Belge loaf, but you can choose any artisan style loaf you prefer. Just make sure it’s good quality and super fresh!
What Goes In and On That Beautiful Loaf?
So much goodness! Here is the very simple how to…
Start by slicing the bread and placing cheese in between each slice. Then melt butter, add freshly chopped herbs and drizzle into all the nooks and crannies! Wrap bread in foil, pop in the oven…
…..and 25 minutes later you have a a warm, soft loaf of bread with melted cheese spilling out between the slices. Whenever I serve this bread it is devoured! In fact, this bread disappears so fast you may just want to make two loaves!
The Recipe: Cheesy Bread with Herbed Butter!
An easy, cheesy, bread side dish! If you like to add a little heat, use pepper jack cheese! NOTE: How much butter and cheese you need will depend on the size of your loaf. Mine was about 12" and I cut about 10 slices.
- 1 medium sized artisan loaf sliced (mine was about 12")
- 1 stick butter, melted 1/2 cup
- 1 medium size garlic clove peeled and minced or grated with a microplane
- 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley plus more for garnish
- 2 Tablespoons chopped basil plus more for garnish
- 10-14 slices jack cheese it depends on the loaf you choose and how many slices you make
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and place oven rack in center position
Melt butter, add herbs to butter and whisk
Slice bread (fairly thickly), place a slice of cheese in between each slice of bread
Drizzle with herbed butter, separating bread slices so butter really gets in there!
Wrap in foil and bake for 25 minutes
Remove from oven, garnish with extra herbs and serve!
