Truthfully I thought this WAS the way to make garlic bread at home. I've always made it this way. Actually it does make a difference if you melt the butter. I used to make a spread, but if you melt it helps for all of,the flavors to seep deep down into the bread. Unless I am baking I rarely use measurements so it is difficult for me to tell you how much of anything to use.
I usually make one half of the loaf of just garlic bread and the other half adding mozzarella cheese. I like to broil for just a minute or two. Add a little fresh Parmesan...perfecto!
A good loaf of bread helps to start off with, but really it doesn't matter in a pinch. (Have used hot dogs buns when kids begged for garlic bread!) I season the outside of the bread with Rosemary or whatever Italian herbs you have available, broil the outside for just a minute to help it crisp up. Then prepare as normal. Kids can have their own little personal loaf.
P.S. Just put two halves back together and wrap in foil, stick back in turned off, but still warm oven to keep warm if you're serving a lot of people.
