Original recipe from Lauren's Latest: http://www.laurenslatest.com/hasselback-garlic-cheesy-bread/

This bread is the very reason why I run. It helps lessen the blow to the whole ‘carbs setting up shop in my hiney’ thing.

And believe it or not, this is super simple to make! I think its safe to say we all have the ingredients for bread in our pantries. Butter-most likely and cheese-uh, yeah! I seem to have these ingredients on hand all.the.time. I used garlic herb butter from Kerrygold and I’ve seen pre-made garlic butter at the store, but it’s really easy to make at home. {Mix butter and finely minced garlic together. Yup, that’s it.}

So, that’s all the info you need to know, m’kay? Let’s make some bread,


1 cup Warm Water
1 Tablespoon Honey
1 envelope Active Dry Yeast (2 1/4 Teaspoons)
1 teaspoon Salt
3 cups Bread Flour
Olive Oil For Greasing Surfaces
1/3 pounds Sharp White Cheddar; Or Any Other Cheese You Prefer
1/2 cups Garlic Butter

Original recipe makes 8 Servings




In a large bowl, stir water, honey and yeast together. Let yeast proof 5 minutes. Once you know yeast is active, stir in salt and the flour in 1/4 cup increments. If you are using a stand mixer, be sure to not increase your speed higher than a 2 or ‘stir’. Once dough starts pulling away from the sides and the bowl seems to be pretty clean, set a timer for 5 minutes and walk away. Let the machine knead the dough. After 5 minutes, dough should be smooth and tacky but when touched shouldn’t leave any dough on your fingers.

Grease the bowl and the dough. Cover with plastic wrap or a kitchen towel and let rise 1 hour or until doubled in size.

Punch down dough and cut into two equal portions. Form into two long baguettes the length of the cookie sheet. I like to twist mine because it looks cool, but it also keeps its length and doesn’t shrink. Cover with plastic wrap and rise 30 minutes. Start to preheat oven to 400 degrees F and place dough close to the oven where it’s nice and warm. Once oven is preheated, remove plastic wrap, from the dough reduce oven to 350F, put the bread into the oven and bake 20 minutes.

In the meantime, slice the cheese into thin slices and melt the butter.

Pull loaves of bread out of the oven after 20 minutes and brush with the melted garlic butter. Bake another 5-7 minutes or until bread begins to turn a golden brown. Remove from oven and cool 15 minutes.

Cut 1-inch slices 3/4's of the the way through the loaves. Brush garlic butter in between each slice and fill with a slice of cheese. Bake another 3-5 minutes or until cheese is completely melted.

Serve immediately.

Very good flavor with the garlic butter. It's a process to make with prep but it's worth it. Definitely something original and tasty to bring to a party or gathering.

OMG!! This is the most delicious bread i've ever tasted!!!! It's super duper yiummmmi!!! The only thing i must say is that the water have to be a little bit warm, not too much, because if it is very warm, the bread won't rise..This is something that everyone must eat!!!

It tastes pretty good but just make sure the water isnt too hot. I learned that the hard way....... didnt rise at all

It tastes very good but it doesnt rise very well. Its very dense and we had to double the rising time and it still barely rose. The picture looks a lot better than the actual thing. Im pretty sure i followed the recipe but idk.
