Quick Cheesy Garlic Bread with my favorite ingredient; cream cheese!

Two of my favorite foods are cream cheese and onions.  So versatile and so good!  Cream cheese is an ingredient in many of my recipes and our family loves it in a quick and easy cheesy garlic bread I'll whip up when it's suitable as an accompaniment to the meal.

I've posted many versions of this and it's one I hope you've considered trying.  I don't even use a recipe most of the time, I just open the refrigerator and use what is in front of me depending on what we have on hand.  Substitutions are great in this recipe so don't be worried if you are out of something.  Improvise... play with your food!

Cheesy Garlic Bread

1 8 oz. package cream cheese
1/4 c sour cream
2 T mayonnaise
1/4 c fresh grated Parmesan cheese
1 T dried parsley
1 T minced green onion tops or 2 t dried chives
6  garlic cloves, minced or use prepared from a jar; about 1/2 - 1 tablespoon depending on how strong you like your garlic flavor.  You can also use garlic powder of course - start with 1 teaspoon and adjust to your taste.

Blend all and spread on 1 loaf of French bread that has been sliced on the diagonal. Place on a cookie sheet other baking sheet and either bake at 350 until to the desired crispness is achieved or you can broil them for 3 minutes under a broiler on high until the cheese is bubbly and hot.
