I usually always make garlic bread when ever I make spaghetti. This is my quick fix way to make it.

It is simple easy, tasty and crusty, and my husband loves it this way. Sometimes I make it even cheesier by adding finely grated Italian Cheese Blend or parmesan cheese on top.

I use to buy the cheap boxes of Mac & Cheese just to get the grated cheese out to use to make the bread. Then I found that I could buy the huge size you see in the picture from Amazon, and that is what I use now. It is great on Pop Corn Potatoes, and the possibilities are limited only by your imagination. Try it.

  • 1
    loaf vienna bread (split in half lengthwise)
  • 1 1/2 stick
    butter, softened to room temperature (or use can't beleive it's not butter)
  • 1 Tbsp
    chopped chive, plus extra for top
  • 1/2-1 tsp
    italian seasoning
  • 2 tsp
    granulated garlic powder (plus extra for top)
  • 4 Tbsp
    grated parmesan cheese
  • 4 Tbsp
    gourmet cheddar cheese powder
  • ·
    finely shredded italian cheese blend (optional) but very tasty



  1. Using a serrated knife cut the Vienna bread in half length wise. PREHEAT OVEN TO 350 DEGREES F.
  2. Gourmet Cheddar Cheese Powder that I love to use on garlic bread, popcorn , mac & cheese, and any thing else that needs a cheddar pick me up.
  3. These are the other main ingredients I use to make the bread. PLEASE NOTE THE BADIA GRANULATED GARLIC is so strong that 1/4 teaspoon is equivalent to 1 clove of garlic, other varieties are less potent, or you can always use real cloves minced if desired.
  4. Combine all of the needed ingredients in a medium size bowl and stir to blend together. I often use CAN BELEIVE IT'S NOT BUTTER when I make this bread, but for the sake of measurement, I used butter because it was easier to measure the amount used to let you know.
  5. Divide in half and spread half of mixture on each piece of bread.
  6. Now sprinkle 2 tablespoons of grated parmesan on each piece of bread.
  7. Repeat with the gourmet Cheddar cheese powder. Cut bread into serving size pieces if desired or leave whole. I prefer cutting so the edges get crispy and crusty. Sprinkle with additional parmesan, or freshly shredded Italian Cheese and chopped chive if desired.
  8. Place in preheated 350 degrees F. oven and bake till butter is melted into bread, and bread is crusty and hot. about 15 minutes. Mine was baked in the microwave, because my microwave does oven bake as well as microwave, hence the round platter.
  9. Serve with a nice Spaghetti Dinner.
  10. Add a tossed salad to make sure you eat your veggies. smile
