A loaf of French bread spread with a buttery, cheesy, garlic topping that is a perfect copycat version of the Black Angus Garlic Cheese Bread is spot on!
Copycat Cheese Bread
I love bread and adore bread and cheese. I crave bread, cheese and garlic.
They say “Man can not live by bread alone” but I bet if you added some cheese and garlic to it you could!
I am always looking for a new way to combine bread, cheese and garlic and today’s recipe for a Copycat Black Angus Cheese Bread is the perfect way to satisfy that craving. The Black Angus restaurants are no longer in business so I’m so glad I can make this delicious bread at home!
- Loaf of French bread. I buy the 1 lb. loaf from the grocery store bakery but you could also use a baguette. The recipe calls for one loaf but I have found that there is enough spread for 2 loaves.
- Cheese. The recipe calls for Monterey jack and asiago cheese but I have also made it with a Colby/Jack blend and it was wonderful too.
- Mayonnaise. I use regular not low fat.
- Green Onions. Chop and use the white part and the green part.
- Garlic. I prefer fresh, minced garlic but you could substitute with garlic powder, use 1 tsp of garlic powder.
How to Make Garlic Cheese Bread
- Cut loaf of bread in half lengthwise.
- In a bowl, combine butter, cheeses, garlic, mayo and green onions.
- Spread desired amount of mixture over the top. (I only used about a 1/2 of the mixture for one loaf) Refrigerate any leftover spread to use later. Use within 2-3 days.
- Bake at 350 degrees F for 7-10 minutes and then place under the broiler for a few minutes. The cheese should be nice and bubbly and golden brown in spots.
Frequently Asked Questions
The garlic cheese mixture can be made ahead of time and kept in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. Spread and bake the bread right before serving. Serve warm for best results.

Prepare the bread according to recipe below. Allow it to cool and then wrap well in plastic wrap or foil. Freeze for up to 3 months.
When ready to enjoy, remove wrapping and place frozen bread on a baking sheet and bake at 300 degrees F for 15-20 minutes or until heated through.
How to Reheat Garlic Cheese Bread
Oven Method: Wrap bread in foil and rewarm in the oven at 350 degrees F for about 10 minutes.
Microwave Method: Warm in the microwave for only 10 seconds . If you do it longer the bread will get hard and tough. I prefer warming in the oven if at all possible.
