I don't remember where I got this recipe, but it's very simple and good.
- 1⁄2 cup butter, softened
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons garlic, minced
- 3⁄4 teaspoon dried basil
- 3⁄4 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1⁄2 cup parmesan cheese, grated
- 1 loaf French bread, split horizontally
- Stir together the butter, garlic, basil, oregano and cheese.
- Spread over each half loaf of bread.
- Cut into serving pieces and broil until golden brown, about 3 to 5 minutes.
This bread was very good and just the right amount of garlic and spices so that it wasn't over powering. I would recommend using fresh parmesan cheese as the other stuff doesn't melt well.
This recipe was fast, easy and yummo! I loved the combination of butter, garlic, cheese and herbs -- perfect. I did not leave the butter out, so melted it in the microwave and brushed it on with a pastry brush. It worked well, however, the parmesan cheese clumped a bit because it was warm. So I caution, if you don't plan ahead such as me shake the parmesan cheese after brushing on the garlic butter herb mixture. I will not be purchasing frozen garlic bread again! Thanks Lazyme!
This recipe was fast and easy to make, and I particularly loved the addition of parmesan, which I will now continue to add whenever I make garlic bread. And I really liked the proportions of butter and garlic. I am a little ambivalent about the addition of oregano and basil though. I will add these if I am serving the bread with Italian food, but for other meals I will make the recipe as posted, but eliminate these herbs.
