Pioneer Woman Garlic Bread

Because I eat pasta AT LEAST once a week I have probably eaten countless loaves of garlic bread during my lifetime. What better way is there to soak up the sauce in your bowl anyway? But I’m a simple girl who is used to garlic bread with only garlic, butter and maybe a sprinkle of parm. So when I saw this recipe on The Pioneer Woman my initial thought was…yuck! Mayo on garlic bread? It sounded revolting to me. But I decided to give this recipe a chance for 2 reasons.

1. Ree knows what she’s talking about. Period.
2. Sometimes a random/odd ingredient just works. Prime example: cottage cheese in our favorite Mac and Cheese.

So was it a success or an epic failure? It was definitely a success, mayo makes everything better I guess! It was cheesy and delicious and such a nice change of pace.  We served it at a recent family dinner and everyone really liked it.

Note: I highly recommend you buy cheese and grate it yourself. I too used to buy the bags of pre-shredded cheese but Kara doesn’t allow it anymore. She’s pretty strict. I have to agree with her though, grating your own results in a moister cheese that melts beautifully. Also, we skipped the green onions because we wanted this 100% veggie free. 😉

Here's what you'll need

Melt butter in a saucepan

Add the garlic and be careful to not let it burn

Lay the bread face down on the skillet so that it can soak up the buttery garlicky goodness

Then lay them on a lined baking sheet

Mix together mayo and cheeses and add a dash of salt.

Spread the mixture liberally onto the bread

Here it is baking and looking perfectly bubbly

Cut it into slices and eat up!
