I always have to, at least, double this recipe as it is quickly devoured, and then everyone loves to tear the bread bowl apart and eat that, too! I serve it with a couple different kinds of bread cubes for dipping, some fresh, some toasted on the grill, and several different vegetables, some grilled and some fresh and crisp. I have also, doubled the garlic on occasion. And, for a luncheon with some of my women friends, I have used small individual bread bowls and it is a really nice touch! Such a versatile recipe! Huge hit at every party!
