If you are a garlic bread lover, brace yourself for this cheesy pesto bread recipe!
I have been infatuated with a few cheesy garlic bread photos going around Pinterest lately. I love garlic bread on its own, and adding melty, stretchy cheese to the party sounds like bread heaven. One version that looks particularly fabulous is Hasselback Garlic Cheesy Bread at Lauren’s Latest. I would be delighted if someone served me this, but come on: I am far too weary to bake my own baguettes. Also, I didn’t have any fancy garlic butter lying around. What I did have was some leftover pesto from last week’s pesto chicken. So, I set out to make my own, easier version of this bread, and I think this cheesy pesto bread recipe is pretty darned easy and good.
You could definitely make this without the cheese and still have delicious pesto garlic bread. Truth be told, the cheese was awesome when it first came out of the oven, but much less awesome after it cooled down and lost its melted goodness. If you want to make this cheesy version, I recommend serving it to a crowd who will eat it fairly quickly while its warm.
