Because it’s so delicious it’s addicting. Which is true. So ditch the long name and just call it “Crack Bread!”
And why is it SO addictive? Amazing sourdough bread with two types of cheese and fresh herbs. And Chef Shamy Garlic Butter!.
To recap: Bread. Cheese. Herbs. Garlic Butter.
No wonder it’s called Crack Bread.
Because there’s not much actual “cooking” in this recipe, it’s important that the ingredients are top notch.
We’ve already talked about the Garlic Butter. It’s important and delicious.
I recommend sourdough bread. I love sourdough. It has a great texture and taste, and a great crust. I really appreciate bread with a good crust.
This recipe calls for three different fresh herbs: basil, rosemary, and thyme. Don’t skimp on the herbs. Get them fresh. Fresh herbs have such a different flavor than dried. If you don’t like one of those herbs, replace it with something else that you think would be good.
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH CHEESE.
I’ll shout it until the day I die.
We used cheddar and mozzarella. Don’t be stingy with it, and add any other cheese that you think would taste good.
This is the perfect bread to a party as a tear and share. It’s great for a family dinner with soup. Or it’s a nice lunch to eat all by yourself.
Seriously, we have too many good pics.
