Parmesan Garlic Bread

Dress up ordinary French bread by topping it with butter, Parmesan cheese and seasonings. It's a quick side dish that will complement the beef stew or most any meal. But don't expect leftovers...your family will have a hard time stopping at just one slice!

    Love this garlic bread recipe! I made the whole batch, but refrigerated remainder, and brought it to room temp to have a second time. Flavorful, crispy, and soft. A definite keeper!

    Yummy garlic bread - this is our favorite! I found this in my 1997 Taste of Home Annual Recipes Cookbook. It's messy, but it's soooo good! -Lori in WI.

    This is an excellent garlic bread recipe, definitely a keeper! I made the garlic-Parmesan butter a day in advance and refrigerated it, covered, then let it come back to room temperature the next day before proceeding with the recipe. And I cooked the foil-wrapped loaf on the upper rack of the gas grill.
