I love this garlic cheese bread with Italian dishes. It is very easy to make, and tastes great.

"Fabulous!!! I am not even sure that does this recipe justice. I used ciabatta bread. I used fresh oregano and fresh basil because I have my own herb garden. We had friends over so I served it with dinner and they devoured it. I only had 3 slices. A definite keeper. Thank you!!!!"

Ingredients

Are you making this? 
1 large Italian bread loaf
1/2 cup Unsalted butter; softened
5 cloves Garlic; minced
1/2 teaspoon Dried Oregano
1/2 teaspoon Dried basil
1/2 teaspoon Salt
black pepper; Freshly ground, to taste
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese; grated
1/2 cup Mozzarella cheese; shredded

Preparation

You've adjusted the recipe from 8 Servings (as originally posted) to 8 Servings. The ingredients above reflect 8 Servings, but the instructions reflect the as-posted 8 Servings. You may need to adjust the times, temperatures or quantities mentioned in the recipe below as needed.

Preheat oven to 350 deg F.

Take bread loaf and slice lengthwise to make two halves. Lay bread onto baking sheet.

Take remaining ingredients and mix together in a small mixing bowl to make herbed garlic butter. Spread 3/4 of butter all over garlic bread evenly. I usually use this amount and then save the last 1/4 of butter to add to other dishes. If you feel like indulging, or if you are just a big butter fan, however, feel free to lather it all on the bread.

Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes or until nice and golden.

Notes

As you may notice, I use dried herb ingredients in here, so that I can make this year-round. In the summer, however, when the herbs are fresh, I usually like to substitute the dried herbs for fresh herbs for an even better taste.

Best garlic cheese bread ever!

Yummy! This will be my go-to garlic bread recipe from now on. My daughter and I felt there was a little too much garlic for our taste, so I'll probably use a little less next time.

Great tasting garlic spread. We used five teaspoons of garlic salt instead of minced garlic, and it was a little overpowering. Next time we make it, we will use two teaspoons of garlic salt instead. Ready in a snap, and very tasty bread. Thanks for sharing.
