How to Make Basic Garlic Bread


  1. Cut your french bread in half lengthwise. Take top half and make your garlic bread. Spread butter over bread, generously. Next sprinkle garlic powder, and then Parmesan cheese, over all.
  2. Place on a cookie sheet. Put under broiler for 5 minutes, or until crispy but not burned. Slice into 1-1/2 inch strips and serve with your favorite salad or pasta dish.
  3. If you have a large crowd make the other half of the french bread. Otherwise, save it for french bread pizza (for left-over pasta sauce), or just plain bread for stews and soups.
