I love to buy the garlic bread with the whole cloves of garlic from Costco, however I can't always get there when I want. I fiddled around a little and this one is pretty close, you do have to plan ahead because the sponge takes at least 18 hrs but the bread is well worth the trouble. This bread makes the BEST grilled sandwiches! I also like to butter it and grill it to go with a salad. YUMMY!!!
