Garlic Cheese Sticks

Nothing goes better with pizza than cheese sticks. So it was a must to have on the table with my Shrimp and Shallot pizza, if it had made it to my table. As soon as I pulled the bread halves out the oven and sliced them into sticks it was a free for all. Everyone wanted to try one, eight people to be exact. I admittedly was one of those eight. They just taste so good hot and cheesy with the perfect amount of garlic, it was hard not to indulge.

Don’t judge me. If you make these you will probably be found guilty too. 🙂 Taste and see for yourself! And learn from my mistake, if you are feeding a crowd double or triple the recipe. You won’t regret it.


Garlic Cheese Sticks


  • 1 stick of unsalted butter. softened

  • 4-5 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1 French Bread Loaf

  • 1- 2 cups of shredded mozzarella Cheese

  • 3 tablespoons of fresh parsley, chopped


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

  • In a small skillet on medium-low heat, add the butter to the skillet and cook until it has completely melted.

  • Next add your garlic. Cook just until the garlic starts singing to your senses about one, no more than two minutes.

  • Slice your french loaf in half and spread the butter-garlic mixture on both halves of the bread.

  • Then top your halves off with the mozzarella cheese.

  • Bake for 10 minutes. Then turn your oven to broil and allow it to cook for an additional 1-2 minutes on broil to allow the cheese to get a few golden cheesy spots.

  • Garnish with chopped parsley.

  • Slice and serve!
