This was really good. I used a large loaf of Italian Ciabatta bread cut in half. I used 3X the amount of garlic and I still think it needed more. The trick to getting the cream cheese and oil to mix is to do it in a food processor. Add the cream cheese and herbs and start pulsing, then very slowly add in the oil while pulsing the machine. If you do it right, the oil and cream cheese will form an emulsion and will not separate. I will make it again, but next time I think I will add feta cheese and garlic salt, it was just missing that extra punch of flavor.
I thought it was okay. I will make it again, but will replace the cream cheese with butter or olive oil.
I had a half a loaf of french bread to use up and made pasta for dinner. This bread was really good. After reading reviews, some had trouble with mixing the olive oil and cream cheese. I decided to drizzle oil on the bread first, then spread the mixture and broil. Since my bread slices were small it only took a few minutes on low to melt. I also drizzled a small amount of olive oil and grated parmesan after coming out of the oven.
Definitely one of my favorite garlic bread recipes! I stuck the cream cheese mixture in the frig. for a little while. It mixed a lot easier!
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 you stop mixing, it immediately begins to separate. Not sure if there's anything to be done about that. Anyway, that being said, it still tasted delicious and was an excellent accompaniment to our spaghetti dinner.
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 were DELICIOUS!!! Creamy, buttery, cheesy goodness! I will be using this recipe a lot, I'm sure! Thanks for posting :)
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! It all got gobbled up at my Easter dinner!
The best garlic bread I have ever tasted!!!! amazing buttery garlicky cheesy..there's nothing like it anywhere, I will be making this over and over again!!!
