Garlic bread is one of my favorites and I make it at home with different combinations. Here is one of the most sought after and immensely relished by the family.
Delicious Garlic Bread Spread
Two loaves French bread (I use normal daily bread also)
One stick butter (soft)
1/2 c. mayonnaise
12 oz. shredded Mozzarella cheese
6 oz. chop black olives (preferably canned ones)
1/2 tsp. basil leaves
1 tsp. oregano leaves
One generous tbsp. dried parsley flakes
1/2 tsp. chili flakes
Green onions, chopped
Bacon, crisp and crumbled
Finely chop black olives and green onions.
Mix all the ingredients together.
Slit open the French bread lengthwise and Spread the mixture on bread.
Sprinkle onions and crumbled bacon over the spread.
Bake on cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until bubbly.
Enjoy the delicate taste of the herbs and spices along with some crispy bacon and green onion.
2.Another option with Veggies and Cottage Cheese
Four Bread Slices
1/2 cup grated Cottage cheese
One large Onion
Five pods of Garlic
1/2 cup Butter
One large Tomato
One Capsicum (bell pepper, any color)
One Green Chilly
1/2 cup grated Mozzarella Cheese
Mash the Garlic into paste and mix this paste with the Butter. Cut the Onion, Tomato, Chilly and Capsicum to small pieces.
Take a Bread Slice or the Italian bread and apply the Garlic Butter mix on it. Now spread the grated cottage cheese on the Bread Slice. Put the pieces of Onion, Tomato, Chilly and Capsicum on the top. Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese.
Preheat the oven to 170 degree Celsius for 3 minutes. Put the prepared bread in it and heat for approximately 5 minutes.
As soon as the Cheese bubbles and it starts to turn brown, remove and place in a serving dish.
Enjoy the healthy snack anytime of the day.
