Bangin' Cheesy Garlic Bread

In a perfect world, we’d all enjoy fresh ingredients year round. Unfortunately, they’re not always readily available (or in season), often too expensive, and let’s face it, not everyone is comfortable chopping veggies and herbs. Sean makes his classic and fan-fave cheesy garlic bread two ways, one with fresh herbs and the with dried. Either way, it's pretty bangin'!
Ingredients
  French bread 1 Pound
  Jack cheese 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs), shredded
  Cheddar cheese 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs), shredded
  Mayonnaise 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Butter 3 Tablespoon
  Garlic clove/Garlic 6 Medium, chop (granulated)
  Onion 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs), chop
  Rosemary 1 Teaspoon
  Thyme 1 Teaspoon
  Tomato 1 Medium
  Salt 1 Teaspoon (to taste)
  Pepper 1⁄2 Teaspoon (to taste)
  Extra virgin olive oil 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Basil 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
Directions

GETTING READY
1.Preheat Oven to 350

MAKING
2.Slice the bread in half lengthwise and spread both sides with equal amounts of butter and mayonnaise. 3.Add the garlic and spread it with a knife to blend with the butter and mayo.
4.Next, add the onion, then tomato, then sprinkle the rosemary, thyme and salt & pepper. Top with equal amounts of cheese and a drizzle of olive oil.
5.Loosely tent each half loaf with foil, being careful not to touch the cheese, or it will get pulled off when you open the foil.
6.Place side by side on a baking sheet and back for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven, carefully opening the foil and fold underneath the bread and bake for another 5 minutes.

SERVING
7.To serve, garnish with basil and slice diagonally for a nice presentation.
