Cheesy Garlic Bread Recipe

I find this crisp bread smothered in a full-flavored topping adds zip to an ordinary meal. It's also a satisfying snack or appetizer. A friend shared this recipe a while back. I always come home with an empty plate when I take it to a gathering. —Judy Skaar, Pardeeville, Wisconsin
