Gluten-free cheese bread recipe additions
Although this recipe uses a combination of Parmesan and mozzarella cheese, you can use just one type of cheese. You can also experiment with other types of gluten-free cheeses to find your favorite. Try the cheese bread recipe with Monterey jack, cheddar, asiago or other varieties.
You can add other herbs and spices to the cheese bread. Consider trying oregano, rosemary, basil and thyme because they work well with both Parmesan cheese and garlic. Other options include adding dill, tarragon, fennel, chives or parsley. Experiment with different herb and spice combinations to find the one that your family prefers the most.
The cheese bread pairs well with dipping sauces such as tomato or pasta sauce. Consider making your own dipping sauce with olive oil, herbs, salt, pepper and lemon juice. Your family will love this cheese bread and will not miss the restaurant or store versions.
