Bangin' Cheesy Garlic Bread Recipe Video

In a perfect world, we’d all enjoy fresh ingredients year round. Unfortunately, they’re not always readily available (or in season), often too expensive, and let’s face it, not everyone is comfortable chopping veggies and herbs. Sean makes his classic and fan-fave cheesy garlic bread two ways, one with fresh herbs and the with dried. Either way, it's pretty bangin'!
