This is great garlic bread ! I have cheated and used what's on hand; minced garlic, salted butter, dried parsley and Italian bread. It's so much better using Martha's way, don't skimp as I did.

I made this with Recipe #311537, and a more flavorful garlic bread I can't imagine. I used about 6 small garlic cloves, because at my house we are garlic fiends. Just a wonderful recipe! Thank you for posting!

This was a really good simple garlic bread! I did cheat a little and use what I had on hand, salted butter and dried parsley (I forgot them both at the store) and I did omit the salt. But other than that it was really good and my kids loved it. I did like the way instructions were written I ended up with a lot of left overs of bread because my kids just didn't eat them all because there was so much. Thanks!
