A simple gluten-free baguette, a little garlic salt and some cheese are so easy to transform into an ever-popular snack – I could make these Gluten-Free Garlic Cheese French Bread Bites every few days in my house. They’re more popular than popcorn!
All I need to do is slice a simple loaf of gluten-free French bread – the baguette is easiest, since it’s finger food-size, but any French bread will do. Then spread with a little cheese and some other toppings, put in the oven for a few minutes and it somehow transforms itself into a gluten-free appetizer that is sure to please the whole family!
These make great after-school snacks for kids, popular appetizers for get-togethers or football parties and I’ve also found them to be quick fillers to serve to my husband, Al, when dinner is late.
I hope you like them, too!
They are this simple to make:
Slice the bread:
Arrange on baking sheet.
Toast on both sides.
Spread with toppings.
Melt the cheese.

Gluten-Free Garlic Cheese French Bread Bites
- 1 Baguette, or your favorite French Bread (day-old is best)
- Garlic Salt to taste
- 2 Cups Cheddar Cheese, Shredded, or more
- Tomato, Chopped, to taste
- Olives, Sliced, to taste
Preheat oven to 425°F.
Slice the bread thinly cross-wise and spread them on a baking sheet, not touching.
Bake for about 5 minutes or until starting to turn golden. Turn over and bake a few more minutes so that both sides are toasted.
Sprinkle with shredded cheese and garlic salt. Arrange tomato and olives evenly.
Return to oven for a few minutes, just until cheese is melted.
This frugal gluten-free recipe is nut-free, and it’s easily ready in less time than a 30 minute meal.
