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".
