RM2- Day 21- Broiled Cheesy Garlic Pumpernickel Bread

Don't let the words Pumpernickel scare you off :) Its just a mildly flavoured bread. The flavour includes the caraway seeds, rye, and other ingredients. We buy the dark version of Pumpernickel bread. If you want to know more refer here:

I loved the unique taste of this bread and its deep color. I decided to make Garlic bread out of it, but then I remembered that we had recently purchased a cheese named : Gouda , and Swiss cheese ,and I wanted to try it. So I decided to make Cheese Garlic bread in my broiler. I referred the Internet to know how garlic breads are usually prepared, and I decided to make my version with different spices.
The Swiss cheese

Gouda cheese
Pumpernickel bread

This is how I made it:


Pumpernickel bread (you may use any other loaf bread or the traditional French or Italian bread used for Garlic bread): 2 slices
Butter: 1/4 cup
Olive Oil : 1 tablespoon
Mashed garlic (Microwave garlic with their skin for 15 seconds) : 5 cloves
Onion powder
Italian seasoning
Cheese slice (I used Swiss cheese): 2 nos
Grated cheese (I used Gouda cheese)

Mix butter along with salt, pepper, garlic, onion powder, Italian seasoning, olive oil and form a thick spreadable paste. Apply it on all sides of the bread slices. Add grated cheese on any top of the bread slices. I placed these slices on a aluminium foil leaving space between each slice so as to broil them individually. I broiled them until all the cheese melted. Then I sandwiched one slice of cheese between the bread slices and the other on the top the sandwich slice and broiled until the cheese melted and forms a light brown coating on the cheese.

This can be served as such or dunk into a hot bowl of soup such as Sweet Corn Edamame Soup :-)
