Cheesy Garlic Bread

Cheesy Garlic Bread


Garlic bread is an easy and really tasty garlicky treat. Although garlic bread can be made with powdered garlic I prefer it made with fresh. This time I tried adding some grated parmigiano reggiano on the top. The cheese melted and turned nice and golden brown. Garlic bread goes well with pastas, soups and stews. This time I enjoyed the garlic bread with this tasty ministrone soup.

Garlic bread: such a simple, but GOOD treat. It really never fails, especially with soup like the wonderful-looking minestrone you have above!

I love that simple-but-good stuff! And adding parsley is great - looks better, tastes better, and helps keep the breath down to a dull roar.

Mmm... so very very good. If I know I am making garlic bread I always mix the garlic and the butter and leave them at room temperature for as long as possible while making other things - ideally a few hours.

Give me bread and give me garlic, and I am a happy woman. But when you throw in a little parmesan, now that's nirvana.
