Garlic Cheesy Bread

Some garlic breads taste more like buttered toast. Not this one - the fresh garlic flavor really comes through. Parmesan cheese on top turns golden brown in the broiler. I enjoy the crunch of the crisp crust. -Gina Squires, Salem, Oregon

    This is my go-to recipe for homemade garlic bread. It's a great way to use up leftover sub rolls or hot dog buns. My family loves it.

    I recall using this recipe also when it appeared in Taste of Home! What I had done was use 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning in addition to the other ingredients, rather than use oregano! I broiled 5 to 10 minutes-WATCH CAREFULLY! This bread I found SO HARD to stop eating! It was THAT GOOD! delowenstein

    We have been making this for years. It's a family favorite. We use hot dog buns instead of french bread. YUM!
