This is so delicious, I just had to pass it along. Very simple to make, and is a great homemade, made from scratch alternative, to the greecy take out product.I like the fact that I am in control of what products go in to my food, and I control the end result. Well here is the recipe, enjoy !!
Hasselback Bread Final 2

Let’s make some bread, yo.

Bread Ingredients

 First thing you’re going to want to do is grab all your ingredients. Nothing to out of the ordinary here.
Bread 1
Into a mixer bowl, add in your water, yeast and honey. Stir it all in
and leave it alone for 5-10 minutes. You want to make sure your yeast is
alive and kickin’.

Bread 3

Once the dough starts pulling away from the sides and the bowl is
looking pretty clean, then it’s time to set the timer and walk away. 5
minutes later your dough should be tacky and smooth. Like, it should
feel a little sticky, but leave nothing on your fingers when you poke at
it. Grease your bowl and dough. Cover the whole thing with a towel or
plastic wrap and let it rise for an hour or until it’s doubled in size.
Bread 4
One hour later, I got me some purdy lookin’ dough!

Bread 5

Punch that dough down and divide into two equal balls.
Bread 6
Roll those dough balls into two baguette shapes the length of your
baking sheet. I like to twist mine because {1}they look cool and {2}it
helps keep them from shrinking.

Bread 7
Cover with plastic wrap and let it rise for 30 minutes. Then preheat
your oven to 400 degrees and place the pan nearby to get all that extra
warmth seeping from your oven.
Bread 8
They should have doubled by the time the oven is preheated {about 45
minutes later}. Reduce the oven temp to 350 and bake for 20 minutes

Bread 9

In the mean time, grab some of your garlic herb butter.

Bread 10
And melt it down. It’s so much faster working with melted butter.
Bread 11
You’re gonna want to slice some cheese too. I used a sharp white cheddar.

Bread 12

After 20 minutes, your french loaves should start to golden. Take them
out of the oven and brush with some melted butter. Bake another 5-7
minutes or until perfectly golden. Remove from oven and cool 15 minutes.
Now, we could stop here and have two lovely french loaves of bread but
I’m insane and must add butter and cheese. So, lets keep going!
Bread 13

Slice your bread into 1 inch slices 3/4 of the way down. It’s important
to let your bread cool at least 15 minutes so that when you cut it it
doesn’t squash the loaf right down. Make sure you use a bread knife too!
Bread 14

Once your bread is sliced, take that garlic butter and slather it on top and in between all those cracks. Be generous!

Bread 15

Then put your slices of cheese into those cracks and bake it another 5 minutes or until all that cheese is melted.

See? Not too hard was it!! Hope you
enjoy! Try not to eat the entire thing in one sitting…or at least have
the decency to change into stretchy pants first.

Hasselback Garlic Cheesy Bread

yield: 2 loaves


1 cup Warm Water

1 Tablespoon Honey

1 envelope Active Dry Yeast (2 1/4 Teaspoons)

1 teaspoon Salt

3 cups Bread Flour

Olive Oil, For Greasing Surfaces

? pounds Sharp White Cheddar, Or Any Other Cheese You Prefer

½ cups Garlic Butter


In a large bowl, stir water, honey and yeast together. Let yeast proof 5
minutes. Once you know yeast is active, stir in salt and the flour in
1/4 cup increments. If you are using a stand mixer, be sure to not
increase your speed higher than a 2 or ‘stir’. Once dough starts pulling
away from the sides and the bowl seems to be pretty clean, set a timer
for 5 minutes and walk away. Let the machine knead the dough. After 5
minutes, dough should be smooth and tacky but when touched shouldn’t
leave any dough on your fingers.

Grease the bowl and the dough. Cover with plastic wrap or a kitchen towel and let rise 1 hour or until doubled in size.

Punch down dough and cut into two equal portions. Form into two long
baguettes the length of the cookie sheet. I like to twist mine because
it looks cool, but it also keeps its length and doesn’t shrink. Cover
with plastic wrap and rise 30 minutes. Start to preheat oven to 400
degrees F and place dough close to the oven where it’s nice and warm.
Once oven is preheated, remove plastic wrap, from the dough reduce oven
to 350F, put the bread into the oven and bake 20 minutes.

In the meantime, slice the cheese into thin slices and melt the butter.

Pull loaves of bread out of the oven after 20 minutes and brush with the
melted garlic butter. Bake another 5-7 minutes or until bread begins to
turn a golden brown. Remove from oven and cool 15 minutes.

Cut 1-inch slices 3/4?s of the the way through the loaves. Brush garlic
butter in between each slice and fill with a slice of cheese. Bake
another 3-5 minutes or until cheese is completely melted.

Serve immediately.
