This is the best garlic bread I have ever tasted. Adjust the ingredients as necessary until the mayonnaise, Parmesan cheese and garlic powder mixture is a paste-like consistency.

As is I don't think its the "best" but with a few MINOR additions puts this recipe among the top. I too added 2 TBLS softened butter used Miracle Whip instead of mayo and less garlic powder (apprx half). BUT I added in a pinch of crushed rosemary pinch of ground thyme and a dash of dried oregano. This really added depth to the bread and is on our top 10 list of favorite garlic breads. Great with pasta! Thanks Kendra! Read More

Like others I thought the title was misleading... However this recipe has possibilites if you cut back on the garlic powder and grated Parmesan. I added some softened butter along with the mayo and some herbs such as oregano and Italian seasoning. You have to play with this one in order to get the garlic bread you're looking for... Read More

Good Recipe. I have one that my family likes better. 3/4 cup mayo 4 oz parm cheese 5 oz cheddar and jack mix 2 tsp. granulated garlic 1/8 cup fresh parsley and 1/2 oz green onion and 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper. Then I bake it at 375 for 5-7 minutes I tend to burn using the broiler. Read More

I make this same recipe using french bread cut in half length wise. In a bowl mix up about 1/2 cup mayo with about 1 cup shredded mozzarela cheese. ON the bread I spread butter on both pieces and sprinkle that with garlic powder and then spread the mayo mixture over that. This gets broiled med to low for about 3-4 minutes (until cheese mixture is browned and bubbling). I have never made this recipe and not been asked for the recipe. It can be very rich but with pasta it is AWESOME!!! Read More

Just to clarify you need to use real mayo NOT miracle whip. The miracle whip will give it a sweeter funny taste. The Mayo is only to hold the ingredients together that is also why it is important to make sure it is a paste consistency. Add more or less garlic to taste I like lots. I get lots of requests and compliments on this garlic bread. It is awesome with a good lasgna. Read More

I read many different recipes and I am reviewing this one since I used this one as a base and went from there. I used softened butter and spread on bread first then combined mayo 3 garlic cloves parm cheese oregano and salt to taste. Strong garlic flavor you can use 2 cloves if you dont like it so strong. The bread was very tasty and I would make this again. My kids said this was they way they always want garlic bread. Read More

The name doesn't describe the end result by far. The ingredients have possibilities but the quantities need adjustment. Sorry we thought it was awful. Read More
