Tired of buying garlic bread spreads and do you want to try a delicious homemade garlic bread? I have a Parmesan Cheese Garlic Bread that you will love.
When I was growing up one of my favorite meals was any meal with my Mom’s garlic bread. My Mom made a garlic bread that would have warded away vampires for a long time. Her ingredients were simple, she used butter, fresh garlic, garlic powder, and parsley. I think her secret was allowing the butter to simmer slowly for a long time. When she would start dinner, she would begin the garlic butter before she would start the rest of the dinner.
A small pot would simmer on the stove and the fragrance of butter and garlic would fill the kitchen. The kitchen would soon become fragrant with garlic. She would serve garlic bread with eggplant parmesan or sometimes she would make a pot of Spaghetti. The garlic bread was always my favorite.
I had a hankering for my Mom’s old style garlic bread, but I wanted to put my own touch on it. I am a major fan of Costco, and I always like to buy their shredded Parmesan cheese. So the last few times when I made this garlic bread I sprinkled just a little bit of the shredded Parmesan cheese on top. I also would spread the butter on the sides of the cut bread so more of the bread would have the chance to get nice and crispy.
