Cheesy Garlic Bread Recipe

We love cheese. We love garlic. And we love bread. With no doubt, cheesy garlic bread spells nothing but gastronomical success. I saw this Hebbar's recipe many moons ago on Facebook, and as soon as I had the chance to try it, I jumped right into it.

It has all the right aromatic ingredients and herb I love, yes its cilantro, coriander, or Chinese parsley as you may call it. And the way we make the marks, it just makes it so easy to pick up your pieces and savour them as you like.

The recipe has 3 parts, the dough, the garlic butter spread and then the filling:

1. For the garlic bread dough:
1/4 cup warm milk
1 tsp dry yeast
1 tsp sugar
some salt
3 cloves of garlic, chopped
some dried oregano
1 tsp butter
1 cup all purpose flour

2. Garlic butter
1/4 cup butter melted
3 cloves garlic chopped
2 tbsp coriander leaves chopped

3. For filling
some mozzarella cheese
some chili flakes, dried oregano, mixed herbs

1) Activate the yeast in warm water and sugar. Follow method here. Mix activated yeast with the rest of the ingredients, except the butter, and knead till mixed. Add the butter and knead well like any other dough. Let it proof for one hour.
2) Mix the items in part (2) together.
3) After proofing, roll the dough out in a circle. Spread ingredients from part (2).
4) Top with mozzarella cheese, some oregano and chilli flakes.
4) Fold the dough and seal the edges.
5) Brush the remaining garlic butter on the dough and top with more herbs and chilli flakes.
6) Make marks over the bread without cutting it through.
7) Bake at 180C for 15 minutes.

The recipe makes 1 semi circle garlic bread. You can also top the bread with some parmesan cheese. Just adds to the divinity of it.

I made 2 versions, with mozzarella cheese filling and another with pasta sauce and cheese filling. The latter tasted much better and made the former really lacking in salt. In future I'd add more salt or I guess just more cheese in the plain version.

Also you can vary, or omit the chilli flakes and dried herbs altogether.

This never goes wrong, makes perfect snack, or meal, if you will! Happy trying!
