This loaded with garlic bread smells amazingly divine. It tastes even better!
8 T softened butter
1 T mayonnaise
Pinch of Salt
5 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 t oregano
1/2 t garlic powder
Pinch of red pepper flakes (optional)
3 T grated Parmesan cheese (fresh or from the can)
Chopped parsley or scallions for garnish (optional)
With rack in middle position, preheat oven to 425.
With an immersion blender beat butter and mayonnaise or stir well with a fork until smooth and luscious.
Stir in salt, minced garlic, oregano and garlic powder, red pepper flakes if using, and parmesan cheese.
Slice bread horizontally through the middle into two halves. Place on a baking sheet.
Spread each bread half with half of the butter mixture.
Place in preheated oven for 10 minutes. Then turn on broiler to high and let bread turn golden. This takes just a few minutes so watch carefully!
Remove and using kitchen shears, cut bread into slices. (I find this easier than using a knife, but whatever works!)
Bread can be buttered and set aside until ready to bake. It can also be reheated after baking in a 300 degree oven. When you smell it, it is ready to serve!
