The Most Incredible Garlic Bread Recipes

Ingredients

  • 1 (20 ounce) loaf French bread, sliced
  • 1 cup olive oil, divided
  • 1 tablespoon crushed garlic
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 pinch salt
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven's broiler. Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a skillet over low heat. Add garlic; cook and stir for a few minutes until fragrant.
  3. In a medium bowl, stir together the cream cheese, garlic, oregano, basil, parsley, salt and pepper. Mix in about half of the remaining olive oil until smooth. Spread 1 tablespoon of this mixture onto each slice of bread, and place them on the foil-lined cookie sheet. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over each slice, then drizzle with remaining olive oil.
  4. Broil for 3 to 5 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly and golden brown. Watch VERY carefully, it will brown fast.
