Cheese and Thyme Garlic Bread

A cheesy twist on a classic favourite.

Serves 4-6
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes


  • 1 long (approx. 30cm) baguette or breadstick
  • 60g Devondale Original Butter, softened
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon picked fresh thyme leaves
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 5 Devondale Colby Cheese Slices, cut into quarters


  1. Cut bread into 2cm-thick slices without cutting all the way through.
  2. Combine butter, garlic and thyme in a bowl. Season with pepper. Spread mixture on the cut sides of bread slices. Place a quarter of a cheese slice between every cut. Wrap loaf in foil.
  3. Bake at 200⁰C for 12 to 15 minutes or until butter and cheese is melted and bread crisp. Serve warm.


  • This recipe can also use Devondale Light n' Tasty or Mild All Rounder Cheese Slices.
  • Alternatively use a jar of minced garlic instead of fresh garlic, if desired.
  • Use fresh parsley or dried thyme instead of fresh thyme if desired.
  • For an extra crunchy top, open foil to expose top of baguette and cook for a further 5 minutes.
  • Add a teaspoon or so of minced chilli to the butter for a fiery kick.
