This is a great recipe. I do it in proportions without measuring so that I make only as much as I need--1 part butter, 1 part Parmesan cheese, half as much mayonnaise... I use more garlic than the recipe calls for because I love garlic. I always use this garlic bread recipe when I'm in a hurry, which is most of the time, and it turns out great! Thanks for posting!

I joined this website, just so I could comment on this recipe. I was looking for a garlic spread or dipping sauce for bread sticks and freshly baked bread. I wanted some body to it, not just melted butter and garlic. Found this recipe, and made the butter - mixed the ingredients and... WOW! Make any bread taste like fresh out of the oven garlic bread. Easy to make, and amazing to taste.
