Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven broiler. Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil.

  • In a small bowl, make a paste with the butter, mayonnaise, garlic paste, basil, 2 tablespoons Parmesan, and pepper.

  • 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.

  • 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.

This really is a great way to fix garlic bread. I used my usual garlic and onion powders and added more or less to suit our tastes. I used oregano in place of basil and mixed everything together and spread it on a sliced baguette. This went great with spaghetti and meatballs. Thanks for sharing. Read More

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. Read More

All my friends yelled at me for cooking dinner on my birthday but hubby did dinner the whole weekend so how could I complain? I don't really know what garlic paste is so I just roasted a couple of heads of garlic and smashed the cloves. Soooooooooo good Rita and thanks! Read More

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 believe makes all the difference. This will only be as good as the quality of bread you use. Other than using fresh minced garlic rather than garlic paste (not really sure what the submitter meant) I didn t play with the recipe. Hubs is out of town so I only made one roll for me good thing.

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. Read More

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 using. Better tasting than the pre-made garlic breads at the market. I liked this even better than Pepperidge Farm's frozen parmesan-garlic bread. Read More

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. Read More

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 perfect with my Sunday gravy. Can't wait to make it again. Thanks Rita. Read More

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. Read More
