Hey guys. Today you are going to be grilling up some bacon and cheese garlic bread. There is something about grilled bacon and cheese garlic bread that always gets me excited. The good news is that it is really easy to make.
For this recipe, you are going to need some butter and you are going to need some bacon. You’re going to need a fresh roll. I would suggest getting one of the big ones so that people can take off a chunk and dig in. You cannot have garlic bread without cheese! You will need some mozzarella cheese, some Parmesan cheese, and some garlic. We are also going to need some parsley and finally some cream cheese.
Grilled Bacon and Cheese Garlic Bread Assembly Time!
With all of your ingredients ready its time to put this together. First off you want to cook up your bacon low and slow. That is really easy and you can choose your favorite wood to give it the flavor that you want.
Whilst the bacon is smoking you want to get started on the roll. We all know garlic bread is full of butter and you are going to need a big chunk of it for this. With the butter, in a bowl, you should add some parmesan cheese. Next, you are going to crush a bunch of garlic cloves into there. Maybe 12, maybe more! How garlicky do you like it?
Now, You’re gonna need a good fresh roll. Hopefully, you chose a big crusty one and you should cut it in a star shape. Just like when you slice a pizza. make about 8 sections that you can stuff the ingredients into.
Now chop up some parsley and add it to the mixture. It will start to look pretty with all those green speckles and it’s going to taste great.
By now the bacon is probably done. You don’t want to crisp it up, because it’ll get hard and chunky. So pull it off the smoker whilst it still has some softness to it. Take a pan and place it on the grill and add the butter, Parmesan cheese, and the garlic. You almost have to bring it up to simmer so it comes together.
Now you are going to chop the bacon up, nice and fine. And you are going to add it to the cream cheese. Leave some of the chopped bacon aside because you are going to use it in a little bit.
It’s Time To Grill the Garlic Bread
Now, if you’ve never had Grilled Bacon and Cheese Garlic Bread before, you’re definitely missing something out of your life. The butter should be coming together nicely by now. You pretty much need to bring it almost to a boil to properly blend everything.
With the butter melted and blended, it is ready. Take the bread and open it up with your fingers. You want to get right inside all of the cuts you have made and let it soak it up.
Now, this is no ordinary garlic bread. This is a meal unto itself! With the bread full it is time to add the bacon and cream cheese. Take the bacon and cream cheese and spread it thickly on each cut. Why stop there? To take it to another level you can then add some mozzarella and some more bacon!
Now you are going to place it in the grill because you are going to bake it. Place it opposite the hot coals, indirect, of course. It’s going to come out great.
