Garlic Bread Recipe

Garlic Bread
(12-16 slices)


8 tbsp. Butter (1 stick), room temperature
2 tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/4 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
1/2 tbsp. Garlic Powder
As needed More Parmesan Cheese
1 loaf Italian Bread, sliced lengthwise


Cream the butter, oil, cheese and garlic powder together until everything is well incorporated.  Spread the butter mixture over the cut sides of the two pieces of Italian bread.  Be generous with the butter mixture.  Now sprinkle more Parmesan cheese on top of the buttered bread to meet your personal taste.  Place the bread on a baking sheet and put under the broiler to cook.  The bread should be about 3 to 5 inches away from the broiler and will take 4 to 6 minutes.  Watch closely as equipment varies.  You want the bread to be nicely browned.  Remove bread when done and place on a cutting board.  You should get 6 to 8 slices out of each piece.

Note:  You could leave it in the 2 pieces and make a great Italian sandwich of
            your choice.  I have an Italian Meatball Sub in the cookbook coming in
             September that would be even better in this garlic bread.

Note:  You can use fresh garlic if you have it on hand.  I would mince 1 or 2
           cloves depending on size.  I use the garlic powder because I always
           have it on hand.

Ideas for Future Efforts
