About Perfect Gooey Mozzarella-Garlic Bread with a Twist Recipe

The interesting part is the use of fresh pav buns instead of normal bread. I had made this for my darling brother who is a die-hard cheese lover. This is the best easy-peasy cheesy garlic bread. It is topped with lots of cheese and baked until it becomes gooey, bubbly-hot and golden. This is the perfect side to round out any pasta or Italian meal and it is also good with soups and stews, or all on its own. These can also be served as a starter snack for gatherings or parties. This recipe has been inspired from a French restaurant.

Ingredients to make Perfect Gooey Mozzarella-Garlic Bread with a Twist

  • 4 fresh pav buns
  • 1- 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp salted butter (softened)
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped garlic
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • Black pepper as required
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped fresh flat leaf parsley
  • Italian seasoning for sprinkling
  • 1 tsp coriander (finely chopped)

How to make Perfect Gooey Mozzarella-Garlic Bread with a Twist

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees centigrade.
  2. Stir together the butter, oil, garlic and parsley in a small bowl.
  3. Cut the buns into half horizontally and place the top side of the bun facing down on a baking tray.
  4. Using a pastry brush, butter them with the garlic mixture. Top each pav with generous amount of cheese and a sprinkle of black pepper and Italian seasoning.
  5. Bake at 200 degree Celsius for 5-6 minutes until bubbly with some golden spots - note to check them often. The cheese will also melt. You don't need to toast these buns.
  6. Garnish with coriander and some melted butter.
  7. Serve warm for best taste.

My Tip:

Use any bread and cheese of your choice. Also add the herbs or spices of your choice. Note that I have used only the top part of the pav. You can use both if you like.
