photo by limeandspoontt
- 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.
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.
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.
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.
