I used reduced fat cream cheese, my own homemade italian seasoning and because I'm on a budget, Kraft parmesan cheese. I spread this on french bread and broiled it for about five minutes. HUGE hit with the boys. They absolutely loved this. I was told that this is the only garlic bread to make from now on. EDITED: Now that I've made this twice, this reminds me a little of Laughing Cow!


Fabulous! This stuff is absolutely delicious! I cut the recipe in half to give this a try and boy am I glad I did. This is basically like a garlic bread spread, but the addition of the cream cheese makes this rich and creamy. This is so simple to throw together and has so few ingredients - what's not to love? I blended everything together and you can easily "tweak" this to suit your tastes. I let it set in the fridge for a few hours to let the blend. Perfect over warm bread, but also great on crackers and I might even try this on carrot or celery sticks...


Well this recipe convinced me that I may not be a fan of cream cheese on my garlic bread. I had a French baguette in the freezer that I split lengthwise. I spread this on the cut sides and popped it under the broiler. I think the cream cheese prevented this from browning the way I would have liked, but the edges were starting to burn so I had to pull it out. This was good, but just didn’t appeal to us as much as some others. I did try the little I had leftover on pita chips and that was good, but again, not a favorite.
