50-Garlic-Clove Cheesy Garlic Bread

Perhaps the cheesiest garlic bread to ever grace the planet πŸŒπŸ™Œ



50 garlic cloves (from approximately 3 garlic bulbs)

1 tablespoon olive oil

250 grams unsalted butter, softened

10 grams flat leaf parsley, leaves only, finely chopped

10 grams tarragon, leaves only, finely chopped

10 grams chives, finely chopped

1 teaspoon white wine or cider vinegar

75 grams Tickler Cheddar cheese, grated

Salt and freshly ground black cheddar


1 loaf of crusty French bread

25 grams Tickler Cheddar cheese, grated


1. Preheat the oven to 180Β°C. Separate the cloves from the bulbs, but leave them in their skins. Toss with the olive oil and roast on a baking tray in the oven for 20–25 minutes until you can feel some give when you poke the cloves with your finger and they have started to caramelise. Set aside to cool.

2. Once cool, pop the cloves out of their skins and either mash with a fork or blitz in the food processor. Add the butter, herbs, vinegar, and cheese and stir well to combine. Season to taste.

3. With your loaf of bread, make deep incisions at regular 2–3 centimetre intervals throughout the loaf, but do not cut all the way through. Add a heaped teaspoon of the garlic butter in between each slice, top with the remaining grated cheese, and bake for 5–10 minutes until golden brown and bubbling. Enjoy!
