“This is a super easy, always delicious recipe for garlic bread with a twist. I got the idea for this recipe when eating out one evening, but developed it on my own. The nice thing about this recipe is that I often use it when I have some bread or buns which tastes a little too stale for sandwiches - so it's a great way to use those extras. If you're going out to buy the ingredients, check the "day-old" rack at your grocery store! The bottled minced garlic can be found in grocery store's condiment aisle. Fresh minced would also work, but I don't recommend dried since the cream cheese overpowers the taste.) It's a great appetizer, snack or side dish for a meal (especially anything with tomato) and even the pickiest eaters in my family love it. It's always the first thing gone at family functions!”
2 pieces of bread
