Good Old Fashioned American Garlic Bread

The most requested recipe believe it or not is for Good Old Fashioned American Garlic Bread. Here is a popular version from that Totally Garlic Cookbook by Helene Siegel & Karen Gillingham. $5.95 @
1 1 pound loaf crusty French or Italian bread
1/4 cup butter
8 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup grated Parmesan Cheese
Preheat Broiler
Cut bread into 1 1/2 inch slices. In skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add garlic and saute stirring for 30 seconds
Bruch one cut side of each bread slice generously with garlic butter. Sprinkle evenly with parsley and Parmesan.
Place under hot broiler until crisp and golden brown. Serve hot.
Makes about 12 slices.

Or you can buy from The Garlic Shoppe a 12 oz jar of minced garlic. Mix 1 tablespoon or more with 1/4 cup of butter.
Spread on bread and yum

Or for something fancy, Buy our Garlic Blue cheese butter. Cooking is little different here. Toast the bread under the broiler then spread a thin layer of The Garlic Shoppes own spread over the bread. Push back under the broiler for 3 minutes to let the butter melt into the bread and brown slightly.
