Garlic Bubble Loaf Recipe
Complete your next spaghetti dinner with this eye-catching loaf. Family and friends will have fun pulling off each rich and buttery piece. The idea for this recipe came from a friend, who received it from her mom. Finding just the right amount of butter involved some trial and error at first...and the same was true for the garlic powder! I ended up tailoring her original recipe to better suit my family's tastes. —Lynn Nichols, Bartlett, Nebraska
