Recipe: Toasted Ciabatta Bread with Cheddar Garlic and Shallot Butter

Ciabatta bread tastes wonderful toasted and even better with my Cheddar Garlic and Shallot Butter. I wanted to make something different…. I was tired of plain dinner rolls… and well… garlic bread just didn’t ring my chimes this time… so I decided to make a toasted ciabatta bread. This was inspired by Giada De Laurentiis… her recipe had different measurements and used scallions instead of shallots.

This quick and easy bread will go with just about any meal… and is a welcome change from the ordinary bread choices for a meal.

The shallots give it a light onion flavor .. and the combines well with the garlic. The cheddar cheese gives it a slightly different taste from the expected.


Cut as little or as much as you like… make the butter and then store the excess for another time.

I lined the baking pan with foil for easier clean-up.

I posted the Cheddar Garlic and Shallot Butter recipe separately… click over to the recipe and then follow these simple steps to make a wonderful addition to any meal.

I hope you try this … you won’t be disappointed!
