  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
  • 1 ½ tablespoon minced garlic (May adjust to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Have nearby a large baking sheet covered with foil. Spritz lightly with cooking spray.

  • In a small mixing bowl whisk together mayo, butter, Parmesan cheese, parsley, chives, garlic, onion powder and red pepper flakes. Add cheese, mix well.
  • Divide cheese mixture evenly between slices. Spritz a second piece of foil with baking spray and cover bread tightly.
  • Bake for 25 minutes. Remove top foil baking for 5 minutes longer until the top is golden.

There's ample salt in the Parmesan and mayonnaise.. You may add additional to your taste.
