Cheesy Garlic Bread - So Delicious!

Our family goes absolutely nuts over garlic. Another plus to raising the kids with a healthy variety of foods and never, ever letting them get boxed into only accepting three or four foods they 'would' eat when they were small. This garlic bread is always a hit with my crew, especially my girls. Tonight I made two loaves of french bread and made them into cheesy garlic bread. My 12 year old asked if she had to have soup because all she wanted for dinner was the bread... lots and lots of bread. And my 17 year old? Would live on garlic bread if she could. 

Cheesy Garlic Bread

2 small/medium loaves French bread or one large, sliced into 1 inch thick slices on the diagonal
1 pkg. (8 oz) cream cheese (1/3 fat or fat free is fine for this)
1/4 c sour cream
1/4 c fresh grated parmesan cheese
2 T mayonnaise
2 T butter
2 T fresh parsley or 1 T dried
1 T minced green onions
6-8 fresh garlic cloves, minced or chopped fine
1/2 t garlic salt
1/4 t onion powder

Place everything in a bowl and microwave for 30-60 seconds to soften. Mix with a rubber scraper or wooden spoon until completely blended. Spread on one side of each slice of bread. Bake on a baking sheet at 400 degrees about 7 minutes until done to your liking. Less for soft bread, more for crisp and golden. Goes excellent with almost any food from seafood to pasta, from spaghetti to soups. We love this bread!Print Friendly and PDF
