Feta Mozzarella Topped Cheesy Bread

Feta mozzarella topped cheesy bread is the ultimate compliment or starter to any meal. We took Cuban bread, topped it with feta, mozzarella, and garlic.

For today’s recipe, we wanted to share one of our favorite cheesy bread dishes. The inspiration for this offering originated at a restaurant I worked at years ago.

The original appetizer was referred to as Greek Bread. Unlike like our cheesy bread, it was served on an Italian loaf. It was wonderful appetizer for pasta dishes.

Since we live in South Florida, I wanted to add a bit of Cuban flare to the cheesy bread. So, I substituted Cuban bread for the Italian loaf.

If you have never had a Cuban sandwich, then you may not be familiar with their bread. Let me tell you, it is something special!

The loaf has a crispy crust and a soft, tender interior. It is similar to a French loaf but differs in the fact that the inside stays moist even when it’s grilled or toasted.

For that reason, it’s perfect for our cheesy bread. However, if you are unable to get your hands on Cuban bread, a large French loaf can be used as a substitute.

If you prefer crunchy bread, then go ahead and use the traditional Italian bread. Personally, I like my bread soft, so I always avoided using that type.

For the cheese, mozzarella is an obvious choice. Mozzarella is rich, salty, and it gives any dish that “stretchy cheese” effect.

For people unfamiliar with feta, it’s a strong cheese. Feta has briny flavor and it doesn’t melt very well. But, it works beautifully on this cheesy bread.

When used in combination with mozzarella, olive oil, garlic, and paprika, the heavy taste is reduced a bit and helps to highlight all the other ingredients.

Whether you are familiar with these ingredients or not, I invite you to prepare this cheesy bread recipe. This bread pairs wonderfully with a tomato based pasta dish.

On the other hand, Kim loved it with a simple homemade ranch dressing. So, how you enjoy it is up to you.

In closing, I wish you a long life, love everlasting, and a tummy full of cheesy bread.

I love cheese bread! Growing up, my mom bought a loaf of french bread, slathered it with butter and roasted garlic. After that she'd sprinkle whatever cheese she had on top and put it in the oven. I especially love it alongside spaghetti. Yum! x

I am drooling over here. Oh my goodness - cheese and bread, what's not to like! I have never melted feta cheese before but I like the idea of adding a Cuban flare to cheesy bread. The addition of garlic makes this perfect!

Thank you, Vicky! Feta is a strange one to melt, it works when blanketed under another cheese lol! The Cuban bread is more about preference than anything else; simply put, I love Cuban bread lol! Have a lovely Friday :)
