This is one of my very special, very secret recipes. When I was young my parents would take me to the North Woods Inn restaurant in California. With your meal you get a basket of garlic cheese bread, and a big family size bowl blue cheese salad and red cabbage salad. The cheese spread can also be added to a baked potato and put under the broiler.
North Woods Inn Garlic Cheese Bread
Makes many servings
- 1 pound grated Cheddar cheese
- 2 ounces grated Romano cheese
- 1-½ pounds butter, room temperature
- ¾ teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon Hungarian sweet paprika
- ⅛ teaspoon hot sauce
- 2-¼ teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 2 loaves French or sourdough bread, sliced ½-inch thick
- Additional Hungarian sweet paprika for sprinkling
- *Tupperware containers for storage
- In a kitchen aid style mixer, whip the room temperature butter for a few minutes, until nearly doubled in size and light in color.
- Add Cheddar cheese, Romano cheese, garlic powder, paprika, hot sauce, and Worcestershire sauce to the whipped butter. Stir until combined, using either the kitchen aid mixer or a large spoon. Store in an airtight container in the fridge until ready to use. *I freeze half in a tupperware container, since it makes a ton of spread
- Spread a thin cheese mixture on white bread slices. Place on foil lined pans.
- Preheat oven broiler. Broil in batches until browned and bubbly.
