Tammy's Review: 

This cheesy variation of garlic bread is highly praised whenever I serve it. The recipe makes 8 "servings" but there are rarely leftovers, even when only 4 people are at the meal. ;) If I don't have green onions on hand, I substitute minced white onions, and it still turns out well. We love this recipe, especially made with my Italian Bread recipe. My rating: 10/10

Before making this loaf I had heard of grilled meats, grilled vegetables, grilled fruits--even grilled tofu. I had also seen people toast their bread on a grill. But I had never seen or heard of a grilled loaf of bread! This recipe is very neat and has a great taste. The flavor improves when it is cooked on a grill that is cooking meat, especially steaks, as the bread gets a pleasant smokey aroma. The slices have a strong yet pleasant flavor and are a great accent to grilled meats.


I made this two days ago and it is superb. Rather than grilling it, though, we put it in the oven. (350 degrees for about 20 minutes) It is very delicious and went over very well with our company! I adore cheese, onions, garlic, and Italian bread, so this recipe is a favorite!


I am definitely a cheese person! This has more flavor and a really great "cheesiness" to it! With the onions added, it's perfect. :) Goes great with lasgna!


What a wonderfully unique garlic bread! The last time we ate it, I had to stop my son from eating half of a loaf by himself.
