Texas toast with cheese

Thick Texas toast slathered with melted butter, garlic, Parmesan and oregano covered in two layers of melted mozzarella and provolone cheese is absolutely irresistible!

My family craves this semi-homemade cheesy Texas toast that is so easy to make and tastes great with pasta meals or a nice piece of meat.
Garlic, Parmesan, mozzarella and provolone on buttered bread is the BEST combination we’ve found for semi-homemade garlic toast. We love a thick piece of bread to serve along side several of our meals and Texas Toast is perfect to use.

This garlic toast is a great way to make a restaurant-style bread to go along with Pot Roast or Pork Chops. This recipe is a perfect way to use bread that is starting to go stale. My kids absolutely love bread, and picking up some day old bread that has been marked down is and is a great value.

Cheese toast recipe has our garlic, oregano and Parmesan spread from our popular Stromboli. The mixture adds so much flavor sandwiched between the bread and cheeses.

Our family of four prefers making this garlicky bread in our air fryer and toaster oven because the tray holds 6 slices of Texas Toast and heats up so quickly. The toaster oven is most convenient for me, but I have certainly made this recipe in the oven and that works fine too.

Some pepperoni can easily be added to have a heartier appetizer or meal and make another spin on one of my favorites – Air Fryer Pizza Sliders.

Grilling is one of our favorite ways to make dinner in nice weather. Everything can be made on the grill which saves a mess and cuts down on dishes inside the house. Marinated Pork Chops or Sweet & Sour Chicken Kabobs make an amazing meal served with a slice of cheesy Texas toast.

When making grilled cheesy toast I always use a layer of foil to prevent burning and help the bread warm more evenly. Heavy Duty aluminum foil is thicker and preferable, but regular foil is better than nothing.

Placing bread on the top rack is a great way to warm the bread and melt the cheese without the higher heat of the bottom grill grate.

A thick bread works best for this recipe since it’s loaded with cheese and so many flavors
Sometimes I like to slice a loaf of Italian or French bread and add this garlic and cheese mixture
If using foil on the solid tray in toaster oven be sure to cover the tray tightly so loose edges don’t inhibit air flow
Toast can be buttered on both sides if preferred, but I like to sandwich all of the garlic flavors in between the toast and melted cheese
A combination of at least two cheeses works best to maximize flavors
Day-old bread off of the discount rack works great for this recipe and helps save money
Garlic toast reheats well in the toaster oven in just a couple minutes
For crispy toast, very lightly toast bread before adding additional ingredients. I often enjoy a soft garlic cheesy bread and skip this step.
Melt butter and stir in Parmesan cheese, garlic powder and oregano. Ensure that spices are mixed into butter very evenly!
Divide butter and spices by spooning some on each slice of bread. Spread the melted butter mixture to the edge of each slice
Sprinkle mozzarella cheese evenly over each piece, spreading cheese to the edges.
Add a slice of provolone cheese to each slice of toast
Bake in air fryer for 5 minutes at 350°F
