Cheesy Garlic Bread on Taste and Tell

Has anyone ever heard of a watermelon allergy? I don’t know if my husband has developed an allergy, or if I just bought a few bad watermelons. A few weeks ago, I cut up a watermelon to go along with our breakfast. Both my husband and I ate some, but a few hours later, my husband said that his stomach was hurting. We went to church, and as we were sitting there, he said that he was going to run home to take something for it. A few minutes later, I got a call – he had gotten sick and couldn’t keep anything down. (There’s really no nice or polite way to say that he was throwing up, is there?!?) He was sick for a few days. Poor guy, his birthday was the next day, but he was still not feeling well at all and spent the day between the couch and the bathroom.

Not thinking that it could be tied to anything we ate – because I didn’t get sick at all – the next weekend we cut up a new watermelon. We were supposed to go to a family dinner that night, but sure enough, after eating that watermelon, my husband started to throw up again. I still didn’t feel sick at all, so now I’m wondering if he has developed an allergy to watermelon. We threw all of the watermelon away, not wanting to take any chances, and he has been ok since then. I did buy both of the watermelons at the same store, so I don’t know what is wrong.

What does this have to do with this cheesy bread? Well, like I mentioned, we were supposed to go to my parent’s house for a family dinner, but my husband ended up getting sick, so we decided to stay home. My mom was making lasagna, and my contribution to the meal was going to be this Cheesy Garlic Bread. Instead, my husband and I got stuck with enough of this bread to feed 12 adults and a bunch of kids. Luckily, I hadn’t assembled the bread yet, so we’ve been able to make some here and there to eat. And I have to admit that we’ve had just this bread for a few dinners now!

My husband isn’t a big bread eater. In fact, if we are out to eat, you can usually just stick the bread basket in front of me, because I could eat the whole thing while my husband will usually pass on it. But he loved this bread, and definitely ate his fair share of it. That says a lot! It is supposedly a knock off from the cheesy bread they serve at Black Angus. I’ve never been to Black Angus before, so I can’t compare them, but I do know I’m a fan of this bread!

  9. Melanie says:

    Hmmm…I’ve never heard of a watermelon allergy but regardless if I were your husband, I wouldn’t be eating watermelon for a while! In the meantime, that bread looks amazing – I wouldn’t feel too bad about having to eat it all yourselves!

  10. Veron says:

    Oh, your poor husband. I have never heard of watermelon allergy. Garlic is good for the stomach…so I must say this cheesy garlic bread is the best cure.

  11. TheKeilShpeel says:

    My Great Aunt is allergic to watermellon. I love all of the food you put on here. I’m going to have to try and make some of this.

  12. Vicki says:

    My mouth gets itchy and my throat closes up when I eat watermelon. Never when I was a kid, only in the last 2 years or so. Bread looks yummy, BTW. πŸ™‚

  13. dobetter says:

    Your poor hubby. Sounds like he’s developed an allergy to watermelon. Your cheesy garlic bread looks great.

  14. Cookie baker Lynn says:

    This looks delicious! I hope your husband is feeling better. I thought allergies were to proteins, so I wonder if there is such a thing as a watermelon allergy?

  15. glamah16 says:

    I have heard of salmonella type sickness from the rind of certain melons in the past. When you slice the part you eat could be tainted.But you didn’t get sick and you would more sensitive to it. With all thats going on with tomatoes and peppers, just exercise caution.

  16. Brilynn says:

    I’ll fight you for the bread bowl! I could eat nothing but bread alone for days, especially if you throw some cheese on it, that looks great!

  17. jasmine says:

    Looks absolutely delicious.

    I’m wondering buying watermelons from a different supplier would help…could be a bad crop from one farm…


  18. Jenny says:

    Is there anything better than this?! Looks terrific!

  19. KJ says:

    oh yum, i love garlic bread. poor hubby if he is allergic to watermelon. there is nothing better on a hot summer’s day.

  20. Sophie says:

    I’m sorry to hear about your husband! This looks like a yummy snack. I’m all about the carbs, too, sometimes I fill up on bread before the actual meal comes :D.

  21. Stef says:

    I certainly hope that it wasn’t an allergy. I have a weird reaction to kiwi, but I’ve never heard of a problem with watermelon. The bread makes me want to bite the screen!

  22. Grace says:

    that’s so unfortunate! i love watermelon and think it’s the perfect summer treat, so i really feel bad for your hubby.
    oh, and two of the nicest things you can do to bread are add cheese and add garlic. lovely. πŸ™‚

  23. Emiline says:

    I could LIVE on cheesy garlic bread. Yep, I could make a meal out of it.

    That’s so weird about your husband and the watermelon. I have a friend that developed an allergy from mango. I guess you melon-eatin’ days are over.

  24. Kristen says:

    Hmmmmm – I don’t know about the watermelon allergy. I know that certain medications cause problems with grapefruit and citrus, but not sure about watermelon.
    Either way, wish I was married to a non-bread eater. The more for me πŸ™‚

  25. Mama Goose says:

    Oh good God, I just gained 10 pounds looking at the pictures!!

    I’m like you Deborah: I’ll eat the whole basket!

    Hope DH isn’t allergic to H20Melon! Summer just ain’t right without it.

  26. Paula says:

    Oh. My. Gosh. This bread looks fantastic! Better than fantastic! I neeeeed to eat this! How awful that your hubby got so ill! I’ve heard of people getting sick from various stuff on the rind, but not the flesh itself. I’m paranoid, so I wash every melon regardless of type before cutting. Poor guy.

  27. Jenn says:

    I have never salivated so much at a simple picture. WOW, the garlic bread looks amazing.

  28. JennDZ - The Leftover Queen says:

    Wow, I am so sorry to hear about your husband – maybe it is sympathy pangs for you? πŸ˜‰

    What a nice little miracle that you were left with all that cheesy garlic bread ingredients. DARN. πŸ˜‰

  29. Meeta says:

    never heard anything like a watermelon allergy before, but it does sound serious.

    if you had invited me over to share that bread i would have happily helped you. i would have even brought the wine!

  30. Jeanine says:

    Oh yum, that cheesy bread looks delicious! Interesting with the mayo, I’ve never seen that before!

    BTW, thanks for stopping by my blog, I appreciate it. Congrats on your pregnancy as well, hope it is all going smoothly for you!

  33. Jeena says:

    The cheese looks so good melted on top and I love the spring onion garnish.

  34. Mrs. L says:

    I’ve gotten sick after eating watermelon before. Of course it was spiked with some vodka. Okay a lot of vodka.

    Love cheesey garlic bread. I have a friend who won’t eat this because of the mayo but I think that so makes it!

  35. Kate / Kajal says:

    ooh hope your hubby is feeling better now. I’m sure the watermelon must’ve been funny. I wish there was a way to tell in advance.
    The cheesy bread looks yum

  36. hot garlic says:

    Hey! Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog, so glad you found me. Your blog is great! So many great ideas.

    I didn’t know there was a Utah Food Blog roll – are you really from Orem? I am not sure if you went to my profile where it says that I live in Sydney and thought I was Australian, because I myself am originally from OREM! I bet we could really win big at the name game…

  37. syrie says:

    Wow, this looks fantastic. Very cheesy. I love it!

  38. Madam Chow says:

    Ah, I see why it’s so good: it contains butter and mayonnaise!

  39. Laura says:

    Actually, watermelon allergies DO exist. It’s common to develop an allergy to melons (all kinds) and bananas and avocados… pretty much all at the same time. If you’re worried that he’s developed this, cut all of those out of his diet for a week and reintroduce them to see his reaction. Also, watermelons are commonly harvested using latex equipment, so if he has a latex allergy, I’d just suggest a visit to a farmers market where you’re more likely to get uncontaminated fruit. Good luck (and the bread looks AMAZING.)!

  40. Heather says:

    i love the cheese when it’s brown and bubbly… this looks delish!

  41. [eatingclub] vancouver || js says:

  45. Rindy R says:

    Bread and Cheese – two of my favorite food groups!!!
    Looks so yummy!

  46. Jenna says:

    Does you husband have any other allergies? It is possible he has Oral Allergy Syndrome in which the body responds to protiens/enzymes in food the same way it responds to pollen allergens. A ragweed allergy can be associated with allergies to raw bananas, and the members of the gourd family (most melons zucchini and cucumber).

  47. kat says:

    there really is nothing better

  48. Nate-n-Annie says:

    Ah, so mayonnaise is the secret! I’m hating mayo less and less every day.

  49. briannalee says:

    oh wow, those look delicious!

  50. Megan says:

    A day without a dishwasher is tooo long! πŸ™‚

  51. Patricia Scarpin says:

    Deb, I’m not a doctor (far from it), but I know that watermelon can be very difficult to digest for some people – like garlic. Maybe it’s the case for your husband.

    The garlic bread… Wow, I wish I could have helped with it! πŸ™‚

  52. HoneyB says:

    Looks so delicious! I want some!

    Cheesy garlic bread is the best! I will have to try adding green onions next time.

  56. Debbie says:

    Looks delicious…..wish I had that bread right now….

  57. Jamie says:

    This is in the oven now! I used mozzarella instead of italian blend. I’m also using Texas Toast in lieu of french bread. I’m excited to taste it!

  58. Terry says:

    This looks so delish! I will definitely make this for one of our weekend meals… thank you!

  59. Shannon and Scott says:

    Yum! That looks great. I’ve been looking for a good garlic bread recipe and I think I’ll have to try this one. πŸ™‚

    Watermelons will detox you pretty hard if you eat a lot, sort of like an apple. Maybe your husband should do a detox, which would help with allergies anyway.
