  • Total Time: 50 minutes
  • Yield: 6 1x


  • 1 round sourdough loaf
  • 2 cloves of garlic (minced (you can add more garlic if you like things extra garlicky!))
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cups of Armstrong Extra-Old Cheddar (sliced thinly)


  1. Cut into the loaf of bread, being careful to only cut 3/4 of the way through, and create a grid pattern of the cuts, with each cut being about an inch apart. Think of a grid pattern.
  2. In a small saucepan melt the butter, then add the minced garlic and simmer for about 1 minute. Don’t boil the butter mixture, just lightly meld the flavours together.
  3. Using a spoon drizzle the garlic butter mixture into the cuts in the bread until the butter is all gone. Make sure to get it into all the cuts!
  4. Then tuck the sliced cheese into all of the cuts in the loaf (see the above picture). If you want it extra cheesy, feel free to add more cheese!
  5. Wrap the bread in tin foil and bake for 30 – 45 minutes, or until the cheese is nice and melted.
  6. If you want the bread to crispen up, bake it for about 10 more minutes with the foil removed.
