View Full Version : Fake Garlic Bread

I can't find the forum I found this recipe on but OMG is it good. Mu husband even LOVED it.

Take 1 tbs Olive oil and heat in a pan.

Take 1 or 2 or 3 string cheese sticks and put in pan.

DON'T TOUCH THEM. Let them start to melt and brown on the bottom.

Once they are melted all the way too the top, sprinkle them with garlic powder.

Slide them out of the pan and let cool for a minute to firm/harden.

They taste PHENOMENAL. Even my hubby who HATES cheese loved these. Once we can make whole wheat spags, we will use these as a garlic bread replacement.

Wow. Sounds interesting. I'll have to try that. What inspired that?

Great substitute for the garlic bread when we do spaghetti!! :) I have it on the menu for next week since my DD requested it. They'll be totally surprised when I serve the "garlic bread". ;)

Thanks for sharing! :)

Thanks for sharing!

I'll definitely be using this once I'm in Phase 2 and allowed to eat pasta. :stir:

I had a craving for super cheesy pizza last month and made something similar to this. They're great. :carrot:

Thanks so much for sharing this... I haven't been on 3FC in months, as I went off my calorie-counting, exercising regimen... I wasn't losing much and was getting burnt out.

My boyfriend's doctor told him to go on SBD and we started it together; we are almost done with Phase 1 but I'm going a bit nutty trying to find snacks I like. This was DELICIOUS. I think we had the heat a bit high though, they were a teeny bit too brown on the bottom... practice makes perfect!

This sounds great! Thanks so much for posting this. What an awesome side dish to go along with spaghetti made with spaghetti squash instead of noodles.

Just remember that cheese is relatively high in calories and should be limited. (Sorry to be a party pooper but I know my limits!)

Well I made this the other night using the lite string cheese at 50 cals a slice. I allowed myself 2 with the no sugar added spaghetti sauce, spaghetti squash and a side salad. This was a great meal!! I didn't miss the garlic bread at all.

Another great cheese snack I make is cheese crackers. Melt about an ounce or so of cheddar cheese in the microwave on parchment paper until the cheese hardens. I start checking at about 30 seconds and take it out when it just starts to brown. Let cool slightly and then break into pieces taste a lot like cheezit crackers. Also I sometimes break them up and throw in a salad as a crouton replacement.

I made these and they were great...but I want to stress that this must be done in a non-stick pan!!! Otherwise, the cheese is almost impossible to get out of the pan.

Made this last night, Y-U-M!

I made this for myself with a slight variation...
Since I was the only one eating this I only used 1 cheese string... made it in to "garlic bread" and topped with left over grilled green peppers & Turkey pepperoni (both cut in bite size pieces) then added a pinch of lf mozzarella (to hold on the toppings) and microwaved it a few seconds just til mozza started to melt.
And voila.... pizza bread!!!!

I absolutely love spaghetti squash. :)

I decided to try this and WOW were they perfect! Truly hit the spot and actually canceled out my craving for chips! LOL

This sounds interesting. For a treat I will have to try this. I actually don't miss the garlic bread when we have spaghetti so kudos to me! lol

I tried this recipe last night, and my husband and I loved it! I didn't have any garlic powder, so I subbed onion powder and sprinkled a little dried thyme on, too. I made it with 3 cheese sticks for the two of us. Very tasty. Thanks for sharing the recipe. :)

Yummy, I am sooo trying this! Especially with the turkey pepperoni on top! Oh, I can't wait! Way to spruce up a snack!

This was delicious! I used garlic infused canola oil and this really hit the spot.
