Gotta-Have-It Garlic Bread

Normally, when I run across a recipe that I want to make, I add my own twist to it. That’s not the case with this gotta-have-it garlic bread recipe from Aaron McCargo Jr. I wish he’d do more shows for the Food Network. This is truly a fantastic garlic bread recipe. It has lots of great flavor, including a hint of heat.

Gotta-Have-It Garlic BreadThis is the only garlic bread I’ll make from now on, although my traditional cheesy garlic bread is pretty normal. The search is over.

PS: The spread on this bread is incredibly yummy. I’m now trying to find a way to incorporate it into a po boy, in some way…
