Firehouse Garlic Bread

My awesome girlfriend, Jackie, made this garlic bread for our family one night and I knew that I was ruined forever. No other garlic bread compares! A firefighter friend passed it on to her, and now, as my part in making the world a much, much, better place, I pass it on to you!


1 cup of mayonnaise

½ cup of shredded mozzarella

½ cup of shredded cheddar cheese

1tsp  garlic powder

½ tsp dried basil

Loaf of sourdough or French bread, sliced lengthwise in half


In a medium sized bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, mozzarella, cheddar, garlic powder, and basil. Spread it evenly on the two halves of bread (Can’t be any easier, right?). Place the bread on a baking sheet and put it in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes and then place it under the broiler for 5 minutes more or until brown on top!

P.S.This recipe is a huge hit with company. You may as well have the recipe printed out for guests because they WILL ask for it! And double the recipe, because once it’s been served, it will disappear quickly! Oh! And you will love this Italian Husband-Approved Minestrone Soup with this bread too! 


YOUR TURN! What’s your favorite meal to pair garlic bread with?
