Garlic Bread with Parmesan Cheese

This isn’t one of those recipes that, upon reading, the word “genius” pops in your head. It’s a staple recipe in my home that replaced the chemical-laden pre-made garlic bread from the grocery store. I made the switch years ago and will never go back. This Garlic Bread with Parmesan Cheese recipe is our favorite.

I will confess…..I only make this garlic bread with parmesan cheese recipe a few times a year. Why? I have no self control when it comes to garlic bread. None. Some folks love chocolate. Others love ice cream. For me, it’s garlic bread. I’m pretty sure I was a deprived child growing up in a family of 6. We were only allotted two slices of garlic bread. Of course 9 times out of 10 my mother would pass her second slice to me, knowing how much I loved the stuff.

Some things never change.

One thing I love about this garlic bread recipe is its adaptability. The more garlic the better for me, but others just like a hint. Same goes for the cheese. The more you make it, the more you know how to adjust the recipe to suit your taste.
