Ideas And Tips:

• You can substitute with whatever cheese you have on hand. Other alternatives to cheese like nutritional yeast is also fine.

• Italian bread was used in this recipe, but you can definitely try using your favorite type of bread.

• The garlic-infused extra virgin olive oil is also great for cooking. You can keep the leftovers in the fridge and use it to sauté vegetables or meat. You can also use it to spread over crackers, as a dip for vegetables, or as a salad dressing.
