When is garlic bread NOT a great idea? The perfect side dish to soups, pizza, pasta – or a cracker of a dish just on its own, sitting around the fire pit. Here’s how to turn a cob loaf into a melted, very cheesy, garlic taste SENSATION!

I’ve used a plain cob loaf from Woolworths – but you can use any type of cob you like. Sourdough cob is great because it’s nice and airy, but go with what you like best – you can even make it wholegrain!

Ingredients: Nothing too fancy required, everything available at your local Woolworths!

Cob Loaf Cheesy Garlic Bread Recipe



1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Crosscut the cob loaf, but don’t cut right through to the bottom, stop slicing just about 3/4 the down.

2. Line a baking dish with baking paper (enough to wrap over the top of the cob loaf) and place your cob in the dish. In a small saucepan or frying pan over a gentle heat, melt together the garlic and butter.

3. Pour the garlic butter into a jug and add the parsley. Mix with a spoon.

4. Pour or spoon the butter mixture between the cuts in the cob (give the mix a stir every now and then so the garlic and parsley don’t settle in the bottom).
