    This was possibly the easiest best tasting garlic bread ever. It tastes so good and is so simple to make!

    LOVE this bread! I used a fresh loaf of French bread, cut in half. I used a brush to put the ingredients on the bread and added a little more garlic and cheese. The cayenne pepper really gives it a bite. Fantastic!

    This was delicious using the crusty baquette from the bakery.
