GREEN GARLIC BREAD! If you follow this blog of mine regularly, you have probably come to know how much I love anything with jalapeños and cilantro! Lately, I’ve been wanting to make a “go to” version of garlic bread and decided I wanted to add a little pizazz to it ! So, I made a garlic bread dressed in this green goodness!!! You could also just make the blend of herbs and use it as a dip or spread instead!
I also really wanted to top this off with some shredded mozzarella but didn’t have any on hand so I shredded some fresh pecorino romano on top instead! However, I think some mozzarella on top, browned up a little bit in the oven would be SO GOOD! I will definitely make it with mozzarella next time!
