Cheesy Garlic Herb Crack Bread
Credit: Handle The Heat
1 Sourdough Loaf
1/2 cup Butter, Melted
2 Garlic Cloves, Minced
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tbsp Parsley, Chopped
2 tsp Rosemary, Minced
2 tsp Thyme, Minced
3/4 cup Mozzarella
• Preheat oven to 350 C
• Grate Mozzarella cheese, put to the side.
• Take Sourdough Loaf, and with a bread knife, cut horizontally, then vertically throughout the loaf, leaving the bread with almost little diamond shapes.
*Careful not to cut all the way through the loaf.*
• Combine Melted Butter, Garlic, Salt, Parsley, Rosemary, and Thyme in a small bowl. Mix together.
• Using your hands, pull apart sections of the sourdough bread, drizzling a tsp worth of butter mixture in each crack, and adding some grated mozzarella cheese. Go through the whole sourdough bread doing this.
• Wrap sourdough loaf in tin foil, place on a cookie sheet and put in oven for 15 minutes, or until cheese is almost completely melted.
• Take out of oven, and carefully unwrap the bread from the tin foil. (Careful, tin foil may be hot.) Then put unwrapped bread back in oven, for another 5-10 minutes, or until crusty, and all cheese is melted. Take out of oven.
•Serve/Enjoy. (Best served right out of oven.)
MenuDuet’s Notes: In the picture displayed;
-The original recipe called for fresh spices, but we just used spices out of a jar/bag.
-We didn’t measure the cheese, we just cut some an put it in.
-The original recipe is in Fahrenheit at 350, so you should do this at 175 C, but we did it at 350 C and it worked for us.
-Was worried there wasn’t enough butter after I poured it all on, but when eating you could tell there was enough.
-When I unwrapped the sourdough from the tin foil, I just placed it back in the oven on the tin foil, so I didn’t actually need a cookie sheet at all.
This is another recipe we have been wanting to try out since we first saw it, a quick yummy bread snack. (Which is one of my favorite things to eat- bread). That being said, we bought the ingredients and quickly went to work. The nice thing about this recipe, is that it was really simple, and didn’t take long at all to prepare or make, and our 2.5 year old approved it as well, haha.
One thing we did agree upon, was it would have been better to share it, like a quick snack at a birthday party, watching a football game, or even having it as a center snack, during a pasta night. (Since it came close to being garlic bread.) Though the only way you would know for sure when to eat it best, is by trying it out yourself.
