  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.

I thought it was okay. I will make it again, but will replace the cream cheese with butter or olive oil.

Very tasty garlic bread! However, my experience tonight is that cream cheese and olive oil just don't mix. It was impossible to get the mixture "smooth" - even using the electic mixer, once yo...

Very good bread! I only had extra virgin olive oil, and I was afraid that the flavor from that would be too strong, so I decided to use half softened butter and half olive oil and the results we...

I used a Sour Dough loaf and 1 Cup melted butter instead of Olive Oil and I just heated the bread until it was hot and bubbly instead of broiling it. It was a delicious combination of flavors! ...

I cut this recipe in half and used day-old ciabatta loaves that I bought off the clearance rack. I thought this might not work......I was kind of iffy about the ingredients and how good they wou...

I used a loaf of soft Italian bread instead of French bread and it turned out perfect under the broiler. I also didn't have oregano or parsley on hand, so I substituted with a teaspoon of Italia...
