"It was OK. I think either the bread was too thick or I needed more butter. The bread below the surface was dry."

"Very easy to fix and a great flavor! A whole lot cheaper than buying from the store too! Plus it tastes so much better! I make this probably every 2-3 weeks in my house."

"Excellent! Didn't use Garlic Cloves - used dried garlic and the dried garlic salt and adjusted to our family taste buds. Also put excess butter mix on top to let is further soak into the break. Big hit at the dinner party and weill make again."

"Have made this twice now, and the family loved it. The only change I made was to spread what was left of the butter over the top of the bread and sprinkle it with a little more parmesan before wrapping and baking. Definitely a great recipe! Sparmesan before"

"Amazing! Followed the recipe exactly and it turned out wonderfully. We didn't think it was too much garlic, but we didn't have any kids in our bunch. I could see where kids might think it was too much."

"I'll definitely make this again, but I'll cut way back on the amount of garlic. According to my 11-year-old daughter four cloves is too much!"
