Recipe by Jennywren93

My Grandma (Grinka!) was an amazing Swede who cooked amazing Italian! LOL Where I grew up if you weren't Swedish, you were Italian, so she must have learned from friends! Anyway, she made this recipe and it was just AMAZING, definitely Italian Garlic Bread, with a Swedish twist (dill) , Everyone RAVES about this... it's the only thing I can serve on Italian night!

My mom made a similar recipe when I was growing up and I misplaced it so I am glad you posted yours. My family really enjoyed the bread. Even my daughter who doesn't like garlic bread ate 4 slices. I didn't have garlic powder, so I used 1.5 tsp of garlic cloves. But with the recipe I knew from before it used garlic powder as well.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. soften butter and put in a small bowl, add all ingredients except dill to bowl. mix well. Slather on your favorite loaf of white/whole wheat bread (french, Italian, sliced Italian, sourdough, etc) Usually we get the french bread and slice it in 1/2 length-wise. After butter mix is all over your bread, sprinkle with dill- heavy or light depending on your desire. I usually try to make it an even green color. Bake in a 425 degree oven for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for 5 min, then cut into 1 1/2 inch slices. Try not to eat a whole loaf yourself! :).
  2. This mix can be doubled or more depending on how much you need, and will keep in the fridge well, I would say a week -- .
