CHEESY BREAD FINGERS
This Halloween appetizer definitely deserves a spot on your Halloween Dinner Party Menu! This cheesy bread is beyond delicious!
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
- 2 teaspoons minced garlic
- 1 cup freshly grated Mozzarella cheese (don't use bagged mozzarella)
- 2 cups freshly grated sharp cheddar cheese
- 1/4 cup regular, full-fat mayo
- 1 tablespoon sour cream
- 1 loaf of French of Ciabatta bread, halved
- 1 bag (6 ounces) Pepperoni, cut in quarters
Preheat the oven to broil on high. Slice the loaf of bread in half horizontally (crusts down) and place both halves on a large baking sheet (line with foil, parchment paper, or spay with cooking spray). Set aside.
In a bowl, mix the softened butter and garlic together until smooth. In a separate large bowl, mix together the cheeses, mayo and sour cream until combined. Combine the two mixtures.
Spread and smooth the cheese mixture evenly on both loaves. Place the cheesy bread under the broiler for 2-4 minutes or until nicely browned. Watch carefully to avoid burning the bread!!
Meanwhile, cut the pepperoni's in quarters to resemble a finger nail.
Remove and allow to slightly cool before cutting (use a sharp bread knife) into thin slices (resemble "fingers"). Place one pepperoni wedge at the top of each of the thin slices.
Enjoy immediately with a side of marinara sauce if desired.
