Recipe by Leslie in Texas
This bread is served at Commander's Palace restaurant in New Orleans. The challenge is always not to eat too much of this before your dinners are served!It's that wonderful- Parmesean, dill-scented garlic bread! It goes great with almost every salad or soup- I especially like it with Commander's Seafood Gumbo. Make plenty, as it will disappear fast! Originally from the 1984 " The Commander's Palace New Orleans Cookbook".
- 1 loaf French bread, about 14 inches long
- 8 tablespoons unsalted butter (One stick)
- 2 garlic cloves, mashed to a puree
- 1⁄4 cup finely chopped fresh dill
