Very enjoyable garlic bread. I used Italian bread and rubbed the minced garlic on with my hands after adding the olive oil, then sprinkled on everything else. Hope you don't mind, but I just eyeballed most of the ingredients--I did use all of the ingredients listed and tried to stay true to the proportions, but was in a hurry and just didn't fancy pulling out measuring spoons. :) I don't know that I'd personally call this recipe "low-fat", but certainly consider it "healthier-fat". I make garlic bread often with olive oil, and this is a nicely-seasoned one. Thanks for posting!

I have cooked both in the Navy and for fun, I have been cooking since I was 7 years old and still enjoy it today. My favorite Cook book series is America's Test Kitchen. I love to read the CIA's "Kitchen and Cook" and alot of my recipe's come from those with modifications. MY PET PEEVES ARE RATING RECIPE's WHEN YOU HAVE SUBSTITUTED INGREDIENTS OR MODIFIED IT!!!!! That's not fair and objective to those reading or those sponsoring the recipe. <img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg">
