This delicious and easy to make Cheesy Garlic Caprese Bread recipe is perfect to serve for lunch or as a snack.
I love summer time; it’s the one time of the year I have fresh vegetables growing in my backyard. This year I went overboard planting tomatoes.
Last summer I felt like I didn’t have enough tomatoes for all the different recipes I wanted to make. Since I have a ton of fresh, delicious tomatoes, I decided to surprise my family with this Cheesy Garlic Caprese Bread.
Now just because I am using tomatoes, I am not going to lie to you and tell you this recipe is healthy. I can tell you it’s pretty darn delicious!
I am warning you the Caprese Bread is addicting; once you taste it you will want to devour the entire loaf. I had to hide the bread when it was finished cooking until I was ready to serve it!
What’s in Cheesy Garlic Caprese Bread
- 3- Medium tomatoes
- 1 Loaf Braided French Bread (I only used half of it)
- 1/2 Stick Butter (I used Land of Lakes)
- 1- Clove Garlic
- 1/4 Cup Fresh Parsley plus 1- teaspoon Parsley
- 1 Cup Mozzarella Cheese
- 1 Cup Fresh Parmesan Cheese
- 2 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Salt & Pepper to taste
How to Make Caprese Bread
Blend all the ingredients together until they’re finely chopped and mixed together. Pour the butter mixture into a small bowl, using a basting brush carefully brush the top and bottom side of the bread.
Once you slice your tomatoes lay them down on a plate. Drizzle one side of the tomatoes with the Olive Oil then sprinkle on salt and pepper to your liking.
Bake for 12-15 minutes in the oven on 400 degrees until cheese is melted and the tomatoes are cooked all the way through.
I think this recipe will become one of my family’s favorite. It was easy to make and it’s absolutely delicious. I know you will want to try it. Warning: You make need to make more than one loaf!
