I replace the mozzrella with 1/2 cup parmesan...and it turns out amazing every time!! I simplify the whole recipe by stirring the garlic powder, parsley, and parmesan into softened butter to make a thick paste, spread the mixture onto the bread slices, and sprinkling a bit of paprika in the center of each piece...then bake! To die for!! :) Read More

I have attempted twice now and both times there is too much garlic. I can tell that if I figure out the measurements.. it would be very good. Hopefully the next batch will come out much better. =) Read More

Four stars as written, using garlic powder and dried parsley. Five stars, using fresh garlic and parsley. I used long, crusty Italian rolls so I didn't bother to bake them. Just toasting these under the broiler worked just fine. Heavier, of course, than traditional garlic bread, but nice for a treat. Very good! Read More

After this, I will NEVER BUY STORE BOUGHT GARLIC BREAD AGAIN!!! We love garlic bread and this one tops all garlic breads!! I only used 1 TBLS garlic powder (which was plenty) and the "sauce" only covered half a loaf of french bread. Of course, the bread was gone in no time! I'm just sorry to see what I have been missing all this time...thanks Noelle! Read More

This is by FAR the best garlic bread EVER!!! So good and SOOOO easy. I serve it with a dish of balsamic vinagar and olive oil. It gets more attention and complements then the main course! Read More

Yum! I left out the herbs and skipped the cheese this time because my husband didn't want it but it was still delicious. I used fresh minced garlic and garlic powder because we adore the stuff and can't seem to get enough. I baked it at 350 for 10 minutes then stuck it under the broiler for about a minute and a half to make it nice and crispy. Definitely a keeper. Read More

This is good garlic bread! I've been making my own version similiar to this one for a long time. I just toast several slices of bread and spread them with butter and sprinkle with garlic powder and parsley. This is a must with pasta!! Read More

The kids thought this was great! We love garlic bread & not only was this easy but tasty as well. I sprinkled paprika on top of mine instead of the cheese. I also used the recipe for Mama D's Italian Bread (found on this site) & went from there. Thanks Noelle! Read More
