Sometimes the best part of the meal is the garlic bread served on the side! This ultra gooey cheese dip takes the best part of the bread and turns into a dippable and shareable appetizer!
Some people say that chocolate is their weakness, but for me, it’s cheese dips! Hot melted, gooey cheese will get salivating like nothing else! If this sounds like you, then read on because you are going to LOVE this garlic bread dip I am sharing with you today!
How To Make Garlic Bread Cheese Dip?
The backbone of this cheese dip is cream cheese. Nothing really gives you that creamy texture quite like a block of cream cheese and it always melts nice and smooth!
There really isn’t a substitute I can recommend here, but you can easily use Neufchatel or Greek Yogurt cream cheese. I also use sour cream in this recipe and once again, you can use Greek yogurt in place of sour cream.
The consistency might be altered slightly, but the end result will still be pretty tasty.
Shredded mozzarella, minced garlic, and a blend of shredded cheese like Romano, Pecorino, and Asiago round out the rest of the ingredients.
This dip is ready when the cheese is melted. All in all, it will take about 20 minutes to bake up all rich and creamy, hot and gooey!

Is This Cheese Dip For Bread?
I like to serve this garlic bread cheese dip with untoasted bread rounds, but tortilla chips, pita chips, bagel chips, veggies, pretzels (hard or soft), and an assortment of veggies are all great ways to serve this dip.
The key is to keep it warm, you can easily pop the dip back in the oven if needed!
Cheese Dip Substitutions
I used pre-shredded cheese for this recipe, but feel free to shred your own for.
You can use a different type of cheese bland for this recipe. Pepper jack, provolone, Monterey jack would all be fantastic!
