grated Romano cheese
1 (8 ounce) package
cream cheese, softened
1 (1 pound) loaf
This is a quick recipe and has been a hit both times I've made it. Rather than just romano, I used the romano-asiago-parmesan shredded mix, and added a little Italian seasoning.
It's a good idea to really keep an eye on these while they're under the broiler--if you have the cheese mix piled high, it gets brown very quickly.
These were pretty good . I divided the cheese spread into three batches and used three different mix-in's - black pepper, sundried tomato and olive. The cheese mixture, while good on its own really lends itself well to adding other flavors. My only complaint is that they were a little salty.
Good. Easy. Nice for company or just family. I made on crackers and it worked well also. Caution: The cream cheese/romano mixture is gross until cooked, so don't try it raw!
Very quick and tasty! I scaled this recipe to 4-5 servings. Mixed half low-fat mayo with half pack of softened cream cheese. Didn't cut into pieces but used on french bread slices and served with pasta. No leftovers here!
Tasty! I used a blend of shredded Italian cheeses instead of just Romano, as that's what I had on hand. Next time I would stick the bread in the oven for a few minutes to toast it before putting on the topping and broiling, as the bottoms were a little too soft. Thanks! :)
This is a great change from regular garlic bread. I used two head of roasted garlic mixed it with the cream cheese in a food processor, then mixed in by hand the romano cheese and some dry parsley. It went well with the Tomato and Garlic Pasta on this site.
Quick and easy... we're new to Romano cheese, so it was a different, but good, taste. We had it with Skillet Chicken Parmigiana and it complimented the dish nicely.
I used fresh garlic. So much better!
