I love to cook! AND eat… so I am always either trying to find new recipes to tweak into my own, or looking for copycat recipes from restaurants I love. I took yesterday off from my good ol’ job. I had some things to take care of, but mostly I got to enjoy the time I had to myself, with my dogs! My hubs goes into the office 1 day a week (works from home the rest of the time) and today was his day in. So here I was…. all by myself! Woohoo! So after relaxing a bit, doing some reading, and doing some coloring in my Coloring Mandalas book, I decided it was time to adult a bit, and figure out what I might do for dinner. And since I hadn’t been grocery shopping in a bit, this was going to be a fun one, NOT.
Then I happened to think about Mellow Mushroom… Ok, you all may not know what that is, and I get it. I didn’t know of it until I moved to Georgia, but WOW. I love it! And they have this appetizer called Muffuletta Cheese Bread , and it’s AMAZING! Oh it’s so tasty. It’s like olive delishisness smothered over french bread and as cheeeeeesy as can be! I looked in the fridge and was ecstatic to find all kinds of olives! Less exited when I realized I had no French Bread. But, aha! I had some hoagie rolls! Oooh yeah, I decided to make my own version of what I thought I could pull off. Minus some ingredients and throwing in whatever the heck I wanted, after all, it’s my version, right?
And I decided to take some pictures along the way… Now I am NOT a fancy photographer and I only had my Galaxy Note 5, no fancy camera, so it is what it is. But it was still very tasty! Even though my pictures don’t do it justice at all.
So it’s actually pretty darn simple, just chop up those ingredients, then mix ’em up with a teeny tiny bit of olive oil. Then I refrigerated it until I was ready to top that bread and toast!
Then it was time! I pulled it back out and got the next step of ingredients: the butter, mayo and cheeses that I had on hand.
- Begin by roughly chopping the first 5 ingredients.
- Combine in bowl with slightest bit of olive oil, mix well
- Add Mayo, melted butter and 1/2 of the cheese, stir well to combine.
- Preheat oven/toaster oven to 350.
- Slice preferred cheese in half lengthwise.
- Spoon mixture onto bread, coating well.
- Top with remaining cheese.
- Bake 18-22 minutes, until bread is toasty and cheese is melted.
- Cut and devour!
