This is a great garlic bread but probably too much spices for our taste. Thanks Munchkin Mama :) Made for cookbook tag game

This was very easy to make and we enjoyed it with recipe #279348. I used fresh Italian bread and followed the ingredients exactly. I would love to have tasted some thyme in the spice mixture and next time I will add this as suggested along with some Parmesan cheese. Thank you so much for a quick and easy recipe!!!
