Method

Slice the bread in half lengthwise. Toast the crust side for 2 mins until really crispy. Mix together butter, garlic and parsley in a bowl. Spread over the cut bread halves. Sprinkle over the Parmesan. Just before serving place on a baking sheet, then cook under a hot grill for 5 mins until toasty and lightly golden. Let it cool for 1 min before cutting into thick slices.

Came out perfectly, very easy to make and makes you wonder why you'd ever buy shop bought garlic bread again?!

I made a variation of these to go with the chorizo, lentil & chickpea soup I made last night. I toasted the bread under the grill and rubbed with garlic and then poured over oil instead of using butter (which my boyfriend doesn't like-strange creature!) I then sprinkled with parsley and toasted them in the grill again for a few more minutes. Delicious!

Really quick and easy. A bit strong tasting for me, but went well with my basic pasta.

We don't buy pre-done garlic bread anymore - this recipe is brilliant.
We don't tend to use the parmesan and pop it in the oven for 10 minutes.
Also good with part baked baguettes!

Absolutely delicious, with or without the parmasan. Always have some garlic butter in the freezer now, which makes this a doddle.

This was very tasty. I got my 4 year old to mix up the butter, spread on the bread and do cheese while I done other things and kept him amused. Served at a family party and no one could believe it wasn't shop bought!

Very tasty and so easy to make but I had to use dried parsley as I didn’t have any fresh. I made them for a party and they were a big hit, much nicer than any shop bought variety and cheaper too.
