This Claim Jumper Clone Garlic Cheese Toast is a simple way to dress up boring bread and goes great with a variety of things from soup and chili to pasta or steak. It takes about one minute to mix up and spread on the bread, then broil for a few minutes until nice and toasty on top.
Claim Jumper is a chain of steakhouses with a California Gold Rush theme. Most of the restaurants are on the west coast of the US. They have amazing steak and burgers (and margaritas!), but my favorite part of the meal was the Garlic Cheese Toast.
The location near us closed down, so I haven't been in years and don't know if they still serve the bread. Luckily I can make it at home whenever we get a craving.
