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. So much delicious food...it makes me want to take a nap just thinking about it. 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
1. In a kitchen aid style mixer, whip the room temperature butter for a few minutes, until nearly doubled in size and light in color.
2. 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
3. Spread a thin cheese mixture on white bread slices. Place on foil lined pans.
4. Preheat oven broiler. Broil in batches until browned and bubbly.
