      GinnyP you are right this is wonderful to have on hand, in fact I'm making more for the freezer. I have used it on grilled steaks and then dotted it over sliced potatoes and onions in foil packets on the grill. Can't wait to try it on some fresh hot bread I'm making. This is great! TY

      I LOVE basil, but I've never thought of adding it to garlic butter. What a great idea! I made this recipe with 1/2 lb. of soft margarine but used the full amount of garlic and parmesan cheese with fabulous results. Wonderful on garlic toast and baked potatoes (and probably a lot of other things)!
