Herb Mushroom Cheese Bread

Herb Mushroom Cheese Bread is loaded with sautéed mushrooms, 2 cheeses and fresh herbs. It’s perfect for Game Day!

Oh cheese bread. You have a special place in my heart. With your ooey-gooey cheesiness you are just down right irresistible. I’ve made you with jalapeños, with smoked white cheddar and even with kale. Today, I’m adding mushrooms and herbs to the mix resulting in this Herb Mushroom Cheese Bread that would be perfect for Game Day or Girl’s Night.

Despite my love affair with cheese bread, it’s not something that we eat a ton of. It’s more of a special occasion kind of thing. Therefore, like all special occasion type of meals, we kind of like to go all out. That is exactly what I did with this Herb Mushroom Cheese Bread.

First, I knew I wanted to have mushrooms. I love mushrooms all year round, but there is just something about fall that screams mushrooms to me. I like to add them to just about everything this time of year: pastas, sandwiches, salads, soups and now cheese bread.

Next, I knew that we needed two different kinds of cheese. Because well…cheese.

Finally, I wanted to add some fresh herb flavor so I decided to go with another one of my favorite fall flavors: thyme. Mushrooms and thyme are just so perfect together so putting some on this bread was kind of a no brainer.

Herb Mushroom Cheese Bread is loaded with sautéed mushrooms, 2 cheeses and fresh herbs. It's perfect for Game Day!

The result was a decadent cheese bread that would be at home in the middle of your game day spread while you sit back and root for your favorite team (Go Hawks!) or on the table during your girl’s night. I mean wine, Under the Tuscan Sun and this bread? Talk about perfection. Am I right?!

    I am SO hungry looking at this! Elevating plain old bread with cheese and veggies is always a great idea!

    The mixture is spread on only 1/2 of the loaf, is that correct?
