Basil-Garlic Cheese Bread

Wednesday, April 15, 2009

Fresh and flavorful, this garlic bread was SO much better than the store bought varieties!

The ingredients:
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 Tbs. grated Parmesan cheese
2 Tbs. olive oil
1 Tbs. lemon juice
2 tsp. minced garlic
1-2 tsp. dried basil
1 loaf (1 pound) unsliced French bread, halved lengthwise

In a small bowl, combine the first six ingredients; spread over cut sides of bread. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Broil 4-6 inches from the heat for 2-3 minutes or until slightly browned. Cut into 2-inch slices. Yields 10 servings.

Enjoy!

I love REAL garlic bread. Your addition of the lemon juice is very interesting...do you taste it on the bread?
