This is always such a hit. Its creamy and full of garlic and cheese. Amazing and the perfect pairing to lasagna or plain red sauce pasta.
Cream Cheese Garlic Bread:
~1 pkg cream cheese (1/3 fat is fine) room temp
~1/2 stick butter room temp
~Garlic powder (to taste)
~1 loaf French or Italian bread (I am using some leftover Tricolor Braid Bread)
~8 oz shredded mozzarella
Combine cream cheese, butter, and garlic powder. It should be a little stronger than you like in just tasting the mixture. It will be flavoring the mozzarella and bread as well.
Slice the bread 3/4 inch thick. Spread about 1/4 inch thick layer cream cheese mix. Top generously with mozzarella.
Bake at 400 until cheese is melted and started to brown
