I replace the mozzrella with 1/2 cup parmesan...and it turns out amazing every time!! I simplify the whole recipe by stirring the garlic powder, parsley, and parmesan into softened butter to make a thick paste, spread the mixture onto the bread slices, and sprinkling a bit of paprika in the center of each piece...then bake! To die for!! :)

I have attempted twice now and both times there is too much garlic. I can tell that if I figure out the measurements.. it would be very good. Hopefully the next batch will come out much better. =)

Four stars as written, using garlic powder and dried parsley. Five stars, using fresh garlic and parsley. I used long, crusty Italian rolls so I didn't bother to bake them. Just toasting these under the broiler worked just fine. Heavier, of course, than traditional garlic bread, but nice for a treat. Very good!

After this, I will NEVER BUY STORE BOUGHT GARLIC BREAD AGAIN!!! We love garlic bread and this one tops all garlic breads!! I only used 1 TBLS garlic powder (which was plenty) and the "sauce" only covered half a loaf of french bread. Of course, the bread was gone in no time! I'm just sorry to see what I have been missing all this time...thanks Noelle!

Yum! I left out the herbs and skipped the cheese this time because my husband didn't want it, but it was still delicious. I used fresh minced garlic and garlic powder because we adore the stuff and can't seem to get enough. I baked it at 350 for 10 minutes then stuck it under the broiler for about a minute and a half to make it nice and crispy. Definitely a keeper.

This is by FAR the best garlic bread EVER!!! So good and SOOOO easy. I serve it with a dish of balsamic vinagar and olive oil. It gets more attention and complements then the main course!

This is good garlic bread! I've been making my own version similiar to this one for a long time. I just toast several slices of bread and spread them with butter and sprinkle with garlic powder and parsley. This is a must with pasta!!
