Homemade garlic bread is the ultimate comfort food because nothing quite hits the spot like buttery, cheesy bread. A wonderful Easter-themed version with delicate mozzarella flowers is no exception.

Use store-bought French bread or ciabatta for this delicious garlic bread recipe. Then, slather on an easy garlic spread with room temperature butter, fresh parsley, grated parmesan cheese, fresh garlic, and sea salt.

Broil until crisp and golden. Then, top it all with beautiful mozzarella and mango daisies for an impressive side dish everyone will love. Perfect for Springtime entertaining and a stunning addition to any meal.
