Friday Recipes Returns: BEST Garlic Bread Ever

Welcome to another edition of Friday Recipes.... The following is my own personal take on garlic bread.

EVERY time that I have made this recipe someone has told me this is the BEST garlic bread that they've ever had...

Be advised: the recipe doesn't have any typos... YES you need that much butter and garlic... Paula Dean would be proud of me (:

Via... This is essentially what it should look like... 
I will have to exchange this at some point with
 a pic of the real thing!!!


1 uncut sourdough loaf
1.5 sticks butter
10 cloves minced crushed garlic
1/3 c chopped fresh parsley
1/2 c grated paremesan


In a heat safe dish, melt butter with garlic and parsley in the microwave. Stir and place in refridgerator until solid. 

Repeat melting and solidifying 2-3 times. 

Melt one last time only for a few seconds so that butter mixture is spreadable but solid. 

Cut bread into upper and lower halves. Make sure both halves are about the same thickness. Spread butter mixture evenly over both halves. Sprinkle Parmesan over both halves. 

Broil on high on a baking sheet until parmesan is melted and turning gold and bubbly. 

Cut into slices and serve. 

Sooooooo GOOOOOD!!!! ENJOY!!!
