Are you making this? 
2 tbs Fresh garlic; 4-5 large cloves, peeled

Original recipe makes 8

Servings  

Preparation

Warm EVOO in a small saucepan. Crush the garlic into the warm (or slightly hot) oil. Add a dash of salt and allow to stand for at least 10 minutes while coolong off. .

Cream together butter and margarine. Gradually blend in the oil/garlic mixture until you have a creamy mixture. It should not be melted or runny. If it's too soft allow it to firm back up to a spreadable consistancy in the refrigerator.

Cut the loaf into 4 pieces and warm them in the oven. When they are fairly hot split each one lengthwise and spread it with the garlic butter. Set them face-up on a cookie sheet and sprinkle them with the parmesan cheese.

Turn the oven to broil and allow it to warm up. Place the bread under the broiler about 8-10 inches away from the heat. Watch closely as the change from white to golden brown to burnt happens rather suddenly.

When it's golden brown and the cheese is melted it's ready/

Notes

Good strong garlic flavor on crisp bread. Goes great with pasta, or salad. It's also good by itself with a mug of beer.
