I also like to add LOTS of garlic, parsley, and sometimes chives. It's up to you, however. We all have our favourite garlic bread family recipe we want to recreate low-carb style.
Cut gently almost the entire way through the garlic bread dough before baking. This allows for even cooking and for the slices to bake beautifully.
