Ready In:
1 1/2 cups spread




  • Microwave margarine in medium glass bowl for about 40 seconds or until its melted.
  • Mix in all ingredients, using a fork.
  • Spread the mixture over bread (I use a one of those long sourdough french loaves split in half lengthwise but I've also used plain thick cut bread or split dinner rolls).
  • Place on baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes at 450, until the top is golden brown.
  • Easy!

    Have you ever tried making it and freezing it before baking it & putting the cheddar cheese on it? Thank you so much.

    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!!!

    This was really, really good garlic bread. I used one large loaf french bread, 1 cup butter, romano cheese instead of parm because that's what I had on hand, and 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt instead of garlic powder. It was so yummy! Thanks for a great recipe!

    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.

    My variation is I mix a bit of butter with olive oil instead of Margarine it make the best garlic bread ever

    Really great bread spread with the perfect amount (for us) of garlic and cheese - loved it. I used butter instead of margarine, slathered it on French bread and baked for 9 minutes. YUM!

    I used butter instead of margarine and used 1 cup of butter and 12 garlic cloves which I put through the garlic press and omitted the parmesan chees (sorry my mob refer parmesan cheese it as SPEW/VOMIT cheese when it is cooked so used 1 1/4 cups of a sharp cheddar) but otherwise cooked as directed - taking nearly 20 minutes on 225C fan forced (could possibly have done with a minute or 2 less for perfection) but the end result was oh so good cheesy garlic bread which we all enjoyed immensily. Thank you SaraFish, made fopr Name that Ingredient tag game.
