The ultimate cheesy bread with a secret ingredient that makes it extra flavor packed! 


  • 1 (12-14- ounce) French baguette
  • 6 tablespoons butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/3 cup blue cheese dressing
  • 1/2 cup diced tomato
  • 2 cups grated mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Split the French baguette in half.
  3. Spread each half with 3- tablespoons of butter and sprinkle evenly with garlic powder.
  4. Spread the blue cheese dressing evenly on each half and add the diced tomato on top.
  5. Cover the bread with the mozzarella cheese and sprinkle with parsley.
  6. Season with salt and pepper.
  7. Bake for 10-15 minutes until cheese is melted and edges are golden and crisp.
  8. Slice and serve.


If you baguette is very soft, or if using another type of bread, like Italian, I recommend following steps 1-3 and toasting the bread lightly on top before adding the blue cheese dressing. This will keep the bread from getting soggy.
