"SaraFish, thanks for posting such a wonderful recipe. What a treat for me and my dinner guests! It is so easy to make, and I loved the garlic/cheeses. Since I was getting all the dinner together and was in the "kitchen rush mode" I used the oven instead of the micro, and it came out just when I wanted it to, and hot. I have a recipe similar, but wanted to try yours, and I'm glad I did."
"Omg this was fantastic!!! Will never buy store bought again. We used it on really fresh French loaf and it was perfect. I didn't even measure out the ingredients, just estimated. Used butter instead of margarine and it gave the bread a wonderful taste. Will make again!"
"WOW!!! SaraFish this cheese spread is to die for. I made this for our bread and served with spaghetti. Oh, what a feast we had. The spread was so easy to make and spread over the bread very nicely. I used sour dough like you suggested but this would work on any kind of bread. Thank you. Gladys"
"Of course, I changed the recipe but it was delicious and I have no doubt the original would be delicious. For cheese I used feta, I replaced the margarine with olive oil."
"Love it and so easy too! Normally I buy clearman's spread at the store which is almost identical but this is better cuz you can put more garlic. I did ad a splash of worstechire sauce just because and this was the best ever! Thanks for sharing, it will be used from now on!!!"
"Very good recipe! I usually season too much or too little when I make garlic bread. This was just right. I used an italian cheese blend instead of cheddar and it was delicious! I look forward to using this recipe at a family party. Thanks for sharing!"
"So good, and restaurant quality! Definitely use fresh garlic. Thanks for posting, I will be making this often!"
"This is the only recipe I use now for garlic cheese bread. Simple, easy, and yummy. I make a whole loaf worth and freeze what we don't use. I don't buy the frozen stuff at the store anymore! Thank you!"
"this is the BEST garlic bread EVER!!! I have made it MANY times before but have forgotten to review it. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would. I am constantly getting requests for this bread. Everyone devours it. I will be making this for many years to come. For a little extra something something I add sun-dried tomatoes when I am so inclined. YUMMY YUMMY YUMMY a million times over."
"I had hotdog buns I needed to use up, so I split them in half, covered them in the spread and broiled for a few minutes. They were just delicious. Thank you for a great recipe."
"I scaled down the recipe and enjoyed on whole grain toast. Thanks!"
"We give it 5 stars for awesomeness. :-) My only suggestion, and I will do this next time, is I will mix everything except the cheeses, spread the butter mixture on, and then I will sprinkle the cheeses evenly over the top. I wasn't able to spread the Cheddar cheese as evenly as I would have liked. :-) but the recipes itself was fabulous and was loved by the whole family."
"Excellent spread... love the idea of trying it on pizza crust, too! I had other things in the oven that were at 350, so I baked it at 350 for 15 minutes. The edges were crisp and the inside was nice... hubby thought the edges were a little too crisp, though."
"Yumm! We spread this on thin whole-wheat pizza crust. It was excellent!"
"Oh, wow! We devoured this! So easy to make, and just perfect with the pasta and scallops we were serving. Thank you Sara, this is one I will make a lot!!"
"Updating my previous review -<br/> 5-stars instead of my original 2 stars. I think it must be the quality of the ingredients I used this time compared to the first time I made this. I started with a loaf of fresh, homemade Italian bread. I used unsalted butter instead of margarine. The cheddar cheese I used was labelled 'Seriously Sharp White Cheddar'. <br/><br/>With nearly 200 5 star ratings, I feel weird giving it 2 stars but for me it was just fair. The cheddar cheese seemed out of place on garlic bread. I couldn't really taste the garlic or the parmesan cheese. I did like how baking, rather than broiling, the bread resulted in a crispy top and bottom."
"This is so wonderful and delicious. This was paired with a lasagna I made. Perfection!"
"My variation is I mix a bit of butter with olive oil instead of Margarine it make the best garlic bread ever"
"Delicious and easy to make."
