Parmesan Garlic Bread Recipe

Parmesan Garlic Bread

Prep Time 5 miuntes Cook Time 15 minutes

Garlic bread has to be one of my downfalls. I could eat it every day but since it's not a well balanced meal, I wait in anticipation and bake it only once or twice a year. I have to restrain myself or I seriously could eat more of this soft toast covered in savory butter than a sumo wrestler would in one sitting! I like to think I have the ultimate garlic bread recipe and seriously folks, I just don't know how you can top it. I start by roasting a full head of garlic in the oven until it's rich, caramelized, and amazing (get the steps for roasting garlic). Then I whip the roasted garlic with butter, herbs, and Parmesan and spread it over a freshly made loaf of bread for the most delectable, mouthwatering, irresistible garlic bread ever. Once you try it, you will be hooked!

Simple and delicious, this recipe for the ultimate garlic bread is one for the recipe box!
