We all want to perform like a pro in the kitchen, but with as little time and effort as possible. Over the next several weeks I will be unveiling 2014’s Top 10 Kitchen Hacks that will be sure to make food preparation and consuming a little more deliciously quick, easy and fun! Not to mention, most are extremely clever and impressive! Today we have “Baked Cheese Bread.” The results are as easy to look at as they are to eat!

Instructions & Ingredients:

1 loaf of your favorite Italian or French Bread; the thicker the crust the crunchier the bite

1 pound of your favorite cheese; sliced thin. Parmesan, Mozzarella or Asiago preferred

A handful of fresh chopped green onions and or basil & oregano mixed with 3 tablespoons olive oil

Slice bread vertically 5-6 times–careful, not all the way to the bottom, leave about an inch; then slice horizontally 6-7 times…remember leave about an inch at the bottom with each cut. I use a wooden kitchen spoon at the bottom as a guide.

Stuff with cheese slices, top with olive oil &  herbs, sprinkle with salt and fresh cracked pepper and bake at 400* for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden and cheese starts to bubble. That’s it! Serve as an appetizer, along side pasta or salad or as a late night snack. Cheesy crunchy EASY perfection!
