Garlic bread or Cheesy Garlic Bread is a bread that is topped with garlic, butter or olive oil and may include additional herbs like oregano, parsley etc. The bread is then either grilled, toasted or baked for a crunchy and nice texture. The recipe that I am going to share not only includes Easy Cheesy Garlic Bread making process but its a garlic bread recipe with a twist. Its the recipe of cheesy garlic bread without oven. The dough comes together in 20 minutes and the bread making takes 40 minutes, its the dough proofing time that requires some patience. I never really liked my bread drenched in butter, it just feels so heavy. But this egg-less cheesy garlic bread is far more better in taste than any other garlic bread. Making this no oven cheesy garlic bread at home is a satisfaction for everyone who wants to bake something unique for their family. Try and enjoy.
In luke warm milk add yeast along with sugar, give a mix and let the yeast ferment for 5-10 minutes.
In a mixing bowl add flour, cooking oil, salt along with fermented yeast mixture. Mix everything.
Knead the mixture well to form soft dough.
Grease the dough and the bowl with oil in which we are going to rest the dough, cover the bowl and let the dough proof for 1-2 hours in a warm place.
For garlic butter filling melt the butter and add chopped coriander, salt, chili flakes, black pepper powder in it. Give a mix to everything and garlic butter mixture is ready.
In a big pot in which you are going to bake the bread add a layer of salt in the bottom. Cover the pot and let it pre heat on very slow flame.
After the dough is doubled in size take it out and divide it in two portions. ( I made two small size breads but you can make a one family size bread as per your choice).
Dust some flour on the work surface and roll it.
Apply some garlic butter mixture in the rolled dough, spread some finely chopped onions and cheese in it. Fold the dough and seal the sides.
Brush the same garlic butter mixture in the bottom of pan in which you are going to bake the bread.
Put the bread dough in pan, make some cuts on the top of bread and brush some garlic butter mixture
Put the baking pan in pre heated pot, cover the pot and bake on slow flame for 30-35 minutes. Do not uncover the pot in the middle of baking.
After 30 minutes the bread will be ready. If it is not golden from top flip its side, cover the pot again and cook for another 5-7 minutes.
Take out the bread, brush some garlic butter oil on top, cut the bread.
No oven homemade stuffed cheesy garlic bread is ready. Serve with ketchup or any dip of your choice.
