When I saw my brother-in-law making this cheesy bread a few weeks ago I said to myself, "Self, that CANNOT be good for you. In no way, shape or form must you go anywhere near that cheesy bread."
Well guess what?
Go near that cheesy bread and all it's horrible-for-you glory.
And I liked it.
"Simple and Nice" Cheese Bread (recipe courtesy of my sister-in-law):
1 loaf french bread (I used leftover hamburger buns from the FREEZER and it was just fine)
1/2 cup butter (I told you this was bad for you)
1 cup mayonnaise (no, I wasn't kidding)
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup shredded monterey jack cheese
Preheat oven to 350. Slice bread in half lengthwise. Melt butter in a small saucepan over med-low heat. Stir in mayonnaise and cheese and melt/stir until it's all combined. You may want to go ahead and do a few squats to make up for the sinning you are about to do, it couldn't hurt.
Place the bread on a large cookie sheet and slather the cheesy mixture on top. Sprinkle generously with parmesan and as much oregano as you prefer (I used very little because I really just was interested in the cheese).
Bake for 5-8 minutes or until lightly browned. Slice and serve.
Now the hard part...don't eat too many pieces. Unless you're a teenaged boy, in that case - have at it.
