    OMG! I just made this :) it is the most amazing this ever! I opened it after it got golden brown and put it in broil with the oven open for about 2-3 minutes, just to get the spread a little more crunchy. Thank you so much for sharing!! Always love your recipies and site!

    Can't go wrong with butter, garlic and cheese! I'm going to give this a try tomorrow with our gravy and macaroni. Grandmas always have the best recipes! Thanks for sharing!

    Needed a garlic spread in a pinch, found this, and it's a winner! However, I only had a small loaf of bread so made way too much. Just a warning. If you have a big French loaf, this is the right amount, but for smaller amounts cut the recipe in half. And I used a little garlic salt as well. Thanks for the recipe will definitely come back.

    This looks really good! Can't wait to try it! But I have one question... Is the 1 tbsp parsley dried or fresh?

    Hi, this recipe looks really yummy! can you used fresh garlic instead of powder or would it be overpowering? thanks!

    We found your recipe and my team made this garlic bread in our college nutrition & dietetics class. It was a huge hit and easily affordable for us, which usually isn't the case when we want to get our hands dirty in the kitchen. Thank you so much for putting together such a delicious recipe and if you would like a copy of your recipe in APA format (cited) and in standardized form I would be happy to send them both to you! :)) My husband and I are going to try more of your recipes at home when we want to switch up our meal plan. :)

Such a delicious recipe! Better than anything I have had at a restaurant. If you haven't yet tried it, please do. It's sure to be a hit!
