I've never made it any secret that I hate to waste anything . . . cooked veg, cooked rice or pasta, cereal, stale bread. I often use my stale bread to make bread crumbs (which I freeze) or bread pudding . . . but if I am feeling especially indulgent, I use my stale bread to make this delicious Cheesy Garlic Bread.
You can use either a stale loaf, or a fresh loaf, or . . . as is most often the case with me . . . stale rolls. I always buy too many rolls when we are having company for dinner. Sometimes they get eaten and sometimes they don't. That's when this recipe comes in really handy!!
I make the garlic butter from a mix of butter, garlic and CreamyCaesar Salad Dressing. It's the salad dressing which gives it that extra zing and taste. It's what you might call my not so secret secret ingredient!
For crispy garlic bread, pop the buttered bread under the grill before topping with the cheese, otherwise just top with the cheese and bake. It all depends on what kind of a mood I am in.
And of course what I am serving it with. Some dishes call for crispy bread, some don't!
Either way . . . this is fabulously moreishly delish!
*Cheesy Garlic Bread*Makes 16 servings
( I use four types gouda, mozarella, leceister and strong cheddar)
