Debbie's Out of This World Garlic Bread

Category: Breads
Difficulty Rating: Very Easy

Everybody loves garlic bread. In fact if Marie Antoinnette had said "Let them eat garlic bread" instead of "Let them eat cake" she might have kept her head.

This garlic bread is special...it has Italian seasoning and Parmesano. You'll see. You will never buy store-bought garlic bread again!  The author of this superb side used to walk with me with our babies in strollers while we prayed together.  We put on many miles on our Adidas in Sunnyvale when Silicon Valley was still young. Sun MicroSystems was still in two buildings and Facebook was just a gleam in a child-genius's eye.
We didn't need to wear jackets because it was the 80's and our butt-lenghth bulky knit sweaters (that made us look HUGE) and acid-washed jeans and leg-warmers sufficed to keep us warm.

Our babies are now "growed up" but the memories will never fade. Thank you Deb, for your garlic bread and invaluable friendship.

Ingredients:

2 cubes butter (soft)
5 cloves garlic (pressed or smashed and finely chopped)
2 T finely grated Parmesan cheese
2 T olive oil
1/4 t Italian seasoning
Grated parmesan or mozzarella cheese (optional)

Mix all above ingredients. Split french bread lengthwise and spread on each half. You can put a thin layer of grated parmesan or mozzarella on top of this if you want to be even more cheesy. Bake in 350 degree oven for 10 minutes or until melted and lightly toasted. Do make extra--you'll need it.
