RECIPE: Gilroy Garlic Bread - did this recipe come from here?

becky_caOctober 25, 2007

I hosted a lunch today for some people from my DH's office -

Chicken Caesar Salad with this bread. To say it was a hit would be putting it mildly - some things are just worth the splurge...

Hi Becky - I know that I, for one, posted that recipe many years ago - I found it in a magazine and it was a winner at the Gilroy Garlic Festival. Everybody we serve it to has the same reaction as your DH's office - love at first bite! It is really outrageous, isn't it. We hardly ever make it anymore - its just so rich - but it sure is a certifiable treat!

Thanks Woodie - I've added your name to my recipe notes :-) It sure was good - one of the ladies asked me what was on the bread, and I told her I would email her the recipe, and just to enjoy it since some things are better left unsaid LOL.

Just wondering if that is real mayo that you both use or is it Miracle Whip type mayo?

I only use Hellman's light mayo. I don't use or know anything about Miracle Whip so I wouldn't know if it would make any difference. My "guess" would be that it wouldn't matter.

I also used Best Foods (same as Hellman's) light mayo - I think Miracle Whip tastes a little different, but I think more than anything the mayo's adding a little creaminess, so it would probably would work too.

Miracle Whip has a very different taste from Mayo. The taste is very tangy, quite a bit of vinegar. I love it for certain things, especially sandwiches and potato salad.

It also does not take heat well, separates, so for a recipe like this I would stick too real Mayo.

Thanks, I'll try it with a light mayo then. It looks like a yummy recipe to try.
