Bubble Toast

Bubble toast. This is the garlic bread of my childhood.

There used to be a restaurant we’d go to that served this bread, but it’s long since closed.  They called it Bubble Toast.  My mom sought to replicate it at home.

It’s so simple, yet so good.  A delicious variation on classic garlic bread!

The sour cream is unexpected, but it’s like the sauce on a pizza.  It just has to be there.

Use any cheese you like – cheddar, colby jack, even provolone.  But make sure you use a thick, crusty bread, or it will never get toasty – it’ll just be soggy.

Bubble Toast!  Yum!

Bubble Toast

Servings vary.

  • crusty bread, such as Cuban or French
  • shredded cheese of your choice (cheddar, colby jack, etc)
  • sour cream
  • garlic powder

Cut the bread loaf in half lengthwise and spread a layer of cream cheese on it.  About as much as you’d put cream cheese on your bagel.

Sprinkle with a little garlic powder to taste.  Top with shredded cheese.

Bake at 350 degrees until the cheese is melted (about 10 minutes), then use the broil function to brown the cheese.  Dive in immediately!

Enjoy!
