I was itching to make my own spread for some fancied up garlic bread. To long have I been making garlic bread by just adding butter, garlic powder and Parmesan to a bread loaf. It just was not cutting it when it comes to some of the meals I cook. I decided this while atop a spin bike in Spin class at the gym peddling to nowhere. I started putting together this garlic bread spread using my imagination taste buds and decided right off that I'd use black olives not only for there smooth rich flavor but also to salt up the spread. After I had decided that everything else just kind of fell into place! The only thing I wish I could have used was some fresh oregano but ours died and we need to plant some more. So dried had to be used but it worked out just fine.

Ingredients:
1 6-8 inch loaf of Italian or French style bread (cut in half down the center)
3 tbsp Brummel and brown
2 cloves garlic (about 1-1 1/2 tsp)
1/4 tsp fresh lime juice
1/4 tsp Romano
1/4 tsp Parmesan
1/4 tsp dried oregano
2 tsp black olives (diced)
1/4 tsp fresh sage (diced)
1 tsp fresh basil (diced)
2 pinches of garlic salt
In a small bowl evenly mix all ingredients except bread.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Spread mixture evenly over the cut sides of the bread and place them on a baking sheet. Put in oven and bake for 10-12 minutes or until bread is toasted.

Serve alone or with a sweet marinara sauce to dip them in.
