Garlic Parmesan Bread

5:52 AM

Wanting to make bread for sandwiches for the kids, I looked around for something cheesy and found this recipe at this site. I'm a sucker for fresh baked bread and have a bread machine, but I don't really have a collection of bread machine recipes, and I'm attempting to remedy that. The recipe below calls for 1-3 teaspoons of garlic, and being the avid garlic fan I am, I went for the full amount. Let me tell you, my house REEKED of garlic it was so powerful, and I wasn't sure if I had ruined the bread. The bread turned out pretty garlicky, but it wasn't too overpowering, so definitely use your best judgement here. Sadly, I didn't really care for this bread. It wasn't all that great, surprisingly, but maybe the garlic did ruin it for me. I decided to try it hot with butter, so I put a slice in the microwave for a few seconds then buttered it up, and it was much better that way (the cheese seemed to stand out this way), but other than that, none of us really cared for it. Sad too...this recipe has all of my favorite things! I suppose I'll have to try another version and find a winner.
