  1. Preheat the oven broiler. Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. In a small bowl, make a paste with the butter, mayonnaise, garlic paste, basil, 2 tablespoons Parmesan, and pepper.
  3. Spread equal amounts of the paste on each roll half. Arrange roll halves on the cookie sheet, topping side up, and sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese.
  4. Broil on the top rack in the preheated oven 1 to 2 minutes, or until lightly toasted. Watch them very carefully! They can burn very quickly. Basically do these at the last minute before serving and check them closely as they broil.

The edges burned, and the middle didn't even get warm. Good ingredients, bad baking method. May try again baking at 400 instead of broil.

I have to say, mayonnaise is a little unconventional, but after all, this is garlic bread Mama Rita’s way…and it’s good. I used rolls from an excellent old Italian bakery in Milwaukee, which I b...

Love this recipe. Perfect use for leftover sandwich rolls. You can sub minced garlic or garlic powder for the paste if you don't have it on hand.

This was delicious. You can use any sort of rolls and cut them in half or in quarters. I also topped it with mozzerella instead of parmesan cheese.

Pretty good tasting garlic bread. I couldn't find garlic paste so I used finely minced garlic instead. This made a lot of garlic spread, I had more than plenty for the loaf of French bread I was...

Woohoo! I gave this recipe a try & I am sooo glad I did! It was the perfect garlic bread in every way. The only thing I did different was use oregano instead of basil (none on hand). Went perfec...

Oh, dear. This is DANGEROUS. I made a half recipe of this using marked down hoagie rolls--nothing remained. I had a couple bites of one and had to restrain myself. No leftovers.
