Recipe: Garlic Bread

Who doesn't love garlic bread?!  It's one of my favorite side dishes for an Italian meal or even for a delicious snack.  A few months back I decided it was time to come up with my own garlic bread recipe and I am so, so happy with how it turned out.  This recipe makes bread that is buttery with lots of garlic, fresh herbs, and just a hint of cheese, just how I like it.  When I made this my family nearly devoured it and there wasn't a slice left.  I was thinking in addition to making this for a typical meal this could be a fun dish to bring to a Thanksgiving or holiday meal, it's a little different from your typical holiday side dish, but something everyone will love.  The one thing I do suggest though is that you bring some mints or gum as a little after dinner treat since everyone will be loaded with garlic after eating this ;)!

-1/2 loaf of long skinny Italian bread (if the loaf is short use the whole loaf)
-1/2 cup butter
-4 large cloves of garlic
-4 large fresh basil leaves
-1 tsp. fresh parsley leaves
-1/2 tsp. garlic powder
-2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
-1 tbsp. Parmesan cheese

-Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
-Cut the loaf of bread in half lengthwise, set aside.
-Melt butter.
-Crush garlic cloves and add to butter.
-Shred basil and parsley into small pieces and add to butter mixture.
-Add garlic powder, extra virgin olive oil, and Parmesan cheese to butter mixture, mix well.
-Place the top and bottom of the loaf of bread on a cookie sheet facing up.
-Generously cover the both pieces of bread with the butter mixture.
-Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes (make sure to keep an eye on it!).
-Allow to cool.
-Cut up and enjoy!
