    1. Preheat the oven's grill.

    Altered ingredient amounts. very good recipie but i make it differently!!!  -  23 May 2011


    Yummy! I used all of these ingredients, but assembled and baked it differently. I sliced the loaf (1/2 loaf of Italian Herb Bread I from this site) in half lengthwise, like splitting a roll. I spread the butter mixture on both sides, then put them together and baked, at 350 in foil for 20 minutes. Then I added the cheese and baked the bread open-faced until the cheese melted. Served with Chicken Milano from this site. I used fresh oregano. Very good- I usually make my own garlic bread but this recipe is great. I love the olive oil addition- I had never thought of that before!  -  22 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe was just what I was looking for - THanks! The only advice I have for future garlic bread makers is DON"T try to broil it on a flat pan or stone! It works best in a deep dish, that way the oils don't drip out.  -  09 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
