I cut a loaf of Italian or French bread in half lengthwise. I make a garlic butter (1 stick softened butter with 1 or more cloves pressed garlic, sometimes some herbs - fresh parsley, basil, etc.) and spread onto the cut bread and either bake or grill the bread.

if you want to avoid the fat of butter:
roast a head of garlic drizzled in evoo in foil in the oven 1 hr 300* when cool, squeeze the soft garlic out and spead it on the hot crusty bread.

Another way is to make individual toasted slices and rub each with a clove of garlic. the flavor will permeate the bread nicely. (1 or 2 cloves of garlic will do a whole loaf)

My family loves any kind of garlic bread, after spreading with butter and garlic powder or cruched fresh garlic, we love to shave parmesan over the top and put it under the broiler..The grandkids fav is spread the bread with a light coating of mayo, then top with your favorite grated cheese, cheddar,swiss,etc..Yummy, My very favorite requires an anchovy lover.. mash your anchovies in their oil, mix with crushed garlic and then melted butter, put on you bread and either broil or grill..

Slice the bread, brush it with EVOO and toast on a cookie sheet under teh broiler. Be careful, it burns quickly. Take it out and rub the toast with a peeled whole clove of garlic.

I'm unconvertional. I slice the bread, spread it with a generous amount of butter, sprinkle it with granulated garlic, sprinkle it with parmigiana, then stick it under the broiler until lightly tanned.

toss some shredded mozarella cheese on it for some variety. Also, whatever you do, try and stay away from the precrushed, jarred garlic stuff. My sister in law uses that and its just not the same :)

This is how I make mine too. But on a lazy day I spread some butter on the bread and sprinkle some garlic powder on it.

I thought that I invented the "roasted garlic" method for bread! That's exactly the way I do it, Robo410, and may add just a tad of butter, dried chives, and sprinkle with paprika. I also like to rub roasted garlic (which mashes easily) over any meat, let set, and then grill or broil. Delicious!
