A friend showed this to me years ago, and I added and changed amounts around to fit my taste. This goes great with any pasta dish, steak, or even seafood. If stored in a plastic bag, either open bag and microwave with a cup of water in microwave, or place 1 tablespoon of water in bag to ensure moist bread after heating.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

  • Cut French bread loaf in half lengthwise and spread butter on both cut sides. Sprinkle each side with 2 teaspoons garlic powder. Place halves on prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until butter has melted and bread is hot but not toasted, about 5 minutes. Remove bread from oven.

  • Turn on oven's broiler.

  • Spread half the bottle of blue cheese salad dressing over each half; sprinkle each piece of bread with mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese.

  • Broil until mozzarella cheese has melted and is slightly browned, 1 to 4 minutes. Watch carefully to prevent burning. Let bread cool 2 to 3 minutes before cutting into serving pieces.

Cook's Note:

I often make this dish on my BBQ grill using indirect heating to do the cooking. This is slower, so allow more time. This can be made using pre-made garlic bread and fixed up with listed ingredients. Experiment and see what your tastes prefer.

I like the flavor it was good. The only thing I would change is the amount of blue cheese dressing. 8oz. Is way too much. Next time I will use about 4 oz. instead. Read More

Loved this cheesey bread! I had a half of a small french baguette on it's way out all of the buttery blue cheese moisture in this perked it right back up! I can't really comment on the full recipe amounts as I had a small portion of bread and just eyeballed the ingredient amounts. Tasty and a do-over! Read More

So good! I ve always thought plain garlic bread needed something. Apparently that something is blue cheese salad dressing. This was amazing! I ran out of garlic powder so I had to substitute fresh garlic but other than that I made the recipe exactly as is. Read More

I made no changes with ingredients only thing I did a little different is to use half a loaf of the bread and did half of the blue cheese dressings in 2 parts first half under cheeses and after broiling and while in cool down time added the rest worked well for me. Thanks for sharing this different and great option for regular garlic bread. Read More

There are only two of us so I eyeballed the ingredients and we were beyond happy with the results. Probably one of the best garlic breads I've ever had. Thanks so much for the recipe. Read More
