“This is more like a version of garlic bread or cheese bread. It's actually something I learned to make from my partner. It goes great with Italian dishes or creamy casseroles. For the bread, I'd suggest a crunchy type of bread, like French bread or a baguette. For the dressing, I use Kraft Fat-Free Zesty Italian dressing. Any type of Italian dressing would work.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 slice bread
  • 39.43 ml Italian salad dressing
  • 113.39 g shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Slice the bread into thick slices (about 1/2 inch thick).
  3. Place on baking sheet. Put about a tsp or so of Italian dressing on each slice and spread it around. Let it soak in a little bit.
  4. Sprinkle shredded cheese on top of each slice. I've used cheddar, co-jack and slices of mozzarella with good results.
  5. Bake for about 8-10 minutes. Your time may vary due to size and dryness of the bread.
