Taste of Italy: Mama LuLu's famous garlic bread recipe

My children seem to forget every dish that I have made for them except for this recipe. It's one they ask for and it's fun to get them involved in making the garlic bread. It's a recipe that you can adjust to your taste — maybe sprinkle some red pepper for more zing or add some chives. It's easy to prep while you're cooking the rest of dinner and then pop it in the oven after everything else is ready! Enjoy!


Loaf of bread - French or Italian is good

Melted butter - 4 tbsp

Lawry's Seasoned Salt - 1 1/2 tsp

Mozzarella or Kraft Italian blend shredded cheese - 1 cup

Shredded Parmesan (Kraft or do your own; don't use the granulated kind) - 1/2 cup or so

Minced Onion - 1 tbsp

Oregano - 1 tbsp

Garlic Salt - 1 tbsp


Cut bread into slices and arrange on a foil-lined pan.

Slices can touch, about an inch thick works well.

Spread melted butter over tops and let soak in.

Sprinkle lightly with Lawry's Seasoned Salt.

Top each piece using shredded mozzarella and/or Kraft Italian blend shredded cheese.

Sprinkle with minced onion.

Top with shredded parmesan.

Sprinkle lightly with oregano and garlic salt.

Bake under broiler, about 2-3 inches away until cheese starts to barely brown on the edges.

Keep a close eye, it cooks fast!
