Take this basic recipe (which is perfectly delicious on it’s own) and feel free to add to it. Garlic powder or fresh minced garlic is a nice touch. Sprinkle with a little Italian seasoning mix if you are serving it with a pasta dish. Use some crumbled feta cheese instead of Parmesan and a little oregano to go with a Mediterranean dish. You get the idea. Its an economical easy way to serve up some hot, cheesy - buttery bread that goes with just about any main dish, pasta, stew or soup. Double the recipe to make sure everyone has plenty to pull – apart and then sit back and watch them swoon over it.
