Great recipe Sydney Mike! The perfect amount of lemony-ness. My dearest husband made french bread from scratch and the 8 thick Texas-toast size pieces soaked up the butter mix perfectly. DH did burn most of them on the grill slightly because he forgot about them while playing with our new kitten, but they were still great. Thanks for the keeper!

This was delicious, i used the broiler and just opened the french bread like you would for garlic bread.
