It’s rich. It’s cheesy and gooey. It’s bacony. It’s garlicky. You need to make this garlic bread at least once in your life.
This is my version of Willie’s Crazy Bread, which is found in Miss Kay’s Duck Commander Kitchen. My sister makes this a lot when she has people over, so I thought I would try it.
- 1 12-inch loaf French bread (or cut a longer one in half and freeze the other half for later)
- 1 stick butter, melted
- 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (or more if you wish)
- 3/4 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 5-6 slices of bacon, cut in half
Here’s what to do:
- Cut slices into the loaf of bread, but don’t go all the way through. Make them a little less than one inch.
- Mix garlic powder and salt into melted butter. Pour butter mixture between the slices of bread.
- Stuff each slice with cheese.
- Sprinkle a little more garlic on top if you wish.
- Line the top with bacon slices.
- Bake at 400 degrees for 8 minutes or so, until the cheese is melted.
- Broil for an additional 5-8 minutes or until the bacon is crisp.
- This would go great with an alfredo dish.
- The original recipe calls for less cheese and bacon. If it’s too rich for you, by all means, you can cut back.
- Don’t try to use parchment paper with this recipe. When you broil the bread, it will burn and smoke up your house. (Not saying this happened to me or anything….) 😉 Line your pan with foil.
