Rosemary Garlic Cheese Bread

All I can say is yummmmmm. This bread is such a wonderful idea that I wish I could say this recipe is my own, but alas, it comes from none other than "Our Best Bites". If you are looking for a simple and delicious appetizer to enjoy, I would high recommend this one! Not only does it taste amazing, but it looks great too!

Rosemary Garlic Cheese Bread
Adapted from: Our Best Bites

1 loaf of crusty bread (16-24oz)
8oz mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup olive oil
4 cloves minced garlic
3 tablespoons fresh rosemary, chopped
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil

Slice the bread every 1 1/2 inches almost all the way through, but not quite. Turn the loaf and cut in the same fashion going in the opposite direction to create a little cube pattern. These lovely little slits will hold all of the flavor and cheese!

Mix the olive oil with the garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper. Spread the olive oil mixture into all the cracks of the bread and then stuff with the cheese.

Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until you have a nice golden color with fantastic gooey cheese.

How amazing does that look?!?

Go ahead and pull a piece of the bread good!

See how the cheese and oil baked right down into the bread!
