Garlic bread is always a hit, but this dressed-up version takes it to the next level. If you need an easy and impressive appetizer for New Year’s Eve, look no further. Granted, this is more fat-laden than most garlic breads, but using the new reduced-fat Vegenaise makes it a little easier to indulge. Probably any vegan cheese would work here, but my favorite is Daiya.
Go ahead, give the recipe a try. You’re worth it!
Ooey Gooey Garlic Bread
1/2 cup vegan mayonnaise
2 tablespoons finely minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
2 tablespoons chopped scallions
1/4 cup shredded vegan mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons shredded vegan cheddar cheese
Black pepper, to taste
1 baguette, sliced in half laterally
Combine the spread ingredients in a small bowl. When mixed, spread evenly over the cut-side of the baguette. Place baguettes on a baking sheet and broil about 4 inches from the boiler about 5 minutes, until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Cut into pieces and serve.

If I don’t post again before 2010, Happy New Year to you!
