creamy garlic french bread

I'm always looking for new ways to dress up French bread. A couple years back, I found this recipe that used a cream cheese mixture to put on slices of bread and broil it. I couldn't remember where it was in my collection of cookbooks and magazines, so I threw some things together and came up with this. Yum! It was a tasty addition to the meal. I really need to get a little tripod. Sorry about the blurriness.

Creamy Garlic French Bread:

3 oz cream cheese, softened
2 T sour cream
2 T Parmesan cheese
1 T mayonnaise
1 1/2 t dried parsley
1 T green onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
5 slices French bread

Preheat the broiler on high.

Soften the cream cheese in the microwave. I do it at 50% power in 30 second intervals until it can be stirred. Add the remaining ingredients. Spread it onto the bread and place on a cookie sheet.

Broil it about 4 inches from the heat source for 2-3 minutes or until the cheese mixture begins to brown. Serve it up!

I was thrilled with the way this turned out. It's a good change from plain ol' french bread with butter. I think I need to go to therapy though. As I have been posting these recipes, almost all of them include cream, cheese, sugar, or something fried. I have issues, but dang, this food is tasty. I guess when people say, "hey! Where did you get your thighs?" I can refer them to my blog. :)
