Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Delicious! This is definitely enough spread for a large loaf of Italian bread. I just eyeballed the amounts of spices and added a little extra garlic and oregano, a splash of olive oil to make it spread nicer and left out the Parmesan cheese (personal preference). I baked mine at a slightly higher oven temperature (400) and then proceeded to get it nice and crispy under the broiler.

This was great! My husband loves the store-made garlic spread that you can buy in most grocery store bakery departments. This was absolutely the one. He was beyond thrilled. I did use day-old baguettes that I bought off the discount bread shelf as I'm tight on money for a while. I swear, this could make shoe leather taste good. ;)

This is exactly how I used to make the garlic bread at a grocery store I used to work at. The only difference is the only dry herb we used was parsley, we didn't add the italian herbs, so it had a more mild taste and went with more meals. In the end we would sprinkle on some "paprika" for a little bit of red color and then wrap each half for sale. It makes garlic bread similar to the ones you get at the grocery store deli, and I even think it tastes a little like the frozen ones, but the ingredients are more natural and it is cheaper to make.
