Cheesy Bread with Herbed Butter!




Yield 14 slices

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 (1/2 cup), melted

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!

  1. Ugh… this is pure torture. Three of my favorite things on earth (bread, cheese, and butter) and I can’t eat ANY of them! Pardon me while I go drown my sorrows in a bowl of soup…
