Oh yes. You read the title correctly. Cheesy garlic bread sandwiches. Garlic butter smothered bread filled with soft brie, crisped and browned to melting gooey perfection. Perfection! I kid you not, this is a sandwich that will make you lick the plate!!! It is my present to you so we can all get through Tuesday and bounce into the Wednesday – and let’s face it, after that it is only a run and a jump to the weekend ;-).
Now lets me start by saying there is nothing healthy about this recipe! If you are doing low carb, low fat, paleo or counting calories, then I am afraid unless you are into tormenting yourself with pictures of melted cheese, you might want to stop reading now. But if like me you love a bit of melted cheese, then drool over your computer……
Honestly I am in cheese sandwich heaven. This recipe came to me in the middle of the night. I had been looking a pictures of what has been called ‘crack bread’, a term I really really dislike, but a dish I really really like. It has been done and pinned so many times and I have to say I have found several recipe that I wouldn’t change at all. Which is great for my cooking, but not so good for my food blog. Anyhow, maybe that is why I was dreaming of garlic bread???
I should mention I wasn’t just dreaming of garlic bread. This wasn’t a dream where I jumped into a swimming pool full of buttery garlic bread, akin to how Winnie the Pooh jumps into honey, although that would have been a great dream!!!
This was much more of a riding through France on pedal bikes and stopping at beautiful French cafés, kind of dream. Actually there is nothing ‘kind of’ about it! That is exactly how it went, I was cycling through France with my sister and Colin Firth. Which is odd as I don’t really cycle very often AND I don’t know Colin Firth. Who knows what was going on in my crazy dream brain!
But what I do know is we stopped at a small café and ordered toasted brie sandwiches that came with a side of melted garlic butter. (It was a great dream!!!) And here in the wonderful dream world my cheesy garlic bread sandwiches were born. Being a cheese, garlic and bread fan, I knew I had to try it, and due to the nature of my addiction to bread, cheese, garlic, and all other foods that help keep me out of skinny jeans, I had the ingredients ready in the fridge/pantry.
And let me tell you, the sandwich lived up to the dream sandwich. Yum!!! If Stew wasn’t currently doing a low carb diet (don’t ask!!) I would be making this for dinner for the next week. I might still do that and just serve him the side salad 😉 Or is that too cruel????? If you are reading Stew….I joke 😉 I promise I won’t do that x
So whilst I go and check that Stew is still talking to me, I will leave you with the wonderful and slightly addictive Cheesy Garlic Bread Sandwich. Enjoy!
