Easy Cheesy Bread Recipe

You ever have that late afternoon carb craving? I get it almost every day around 5pm, right before I’m leaving my job.  I just start thinking about every carb related food that I shouldn’t be eating and it starts consuming my brain! Thoughts of cheezy puffs, ice cream, dinner rolls, Fettucine Alfredo, you name it, I’ve craved it. So I decided to come up with a semi-healthy carb option that can be easily cooked up in the oven in about 15 minutes. You can pretty much make this cheesy bread with any kind of “roll”, but if you want to make it healthier you can choose whole grain, gluten-free, or whole wheat options from the local store.

Yesterday evening when I made this, the only bread in the fridge were some potato rolls, like the kind you use for hamburgers. haha.  But, it still turned out amazingly crunchy and delicious, not to mention cheesy and satisfying. I personally like to make this with only one type of cheese to keep it simple- so I just used Parmesan cheese yesterday. If you want your rolls extra cheesy, you can layer several different types of cheese! This Easy Cheesy Bread is your fix to that afternoon carb craving.
