This tasty bread is addictive. I think hubby and I ate more of this than the pasta that was for the main meal. Adding roasted garlic and Parmesan cheese to the butter mix really puts this on the next level. The bread is slightly crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside with a nice flavor of garlic and buttery Parmesan ….. heaven!
Here’s what you need:
*5 garlic cloves (or more for a more garlic taste); peeled
*1/2 stick butter, softened ( I used a small loaf of French bread so if you are using a bigger one use 1 stick of butter.)
*2 TBS finely grated Parmesan cheese (the kind that looks like sand)
*2tsp dried parsley (all I had was dried)
Preheat oven to 350°. Place a small sheet of foil on a baking sheet. Drizzle garlic cloves with oil.
Fold foil over cloves to seal them. Roast garlic in oven for 20 minutes or until soft. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool
Turn oven temperature up to 425°.
Slice bread in half lengthwise and place on to a baking sheet.
Place roasted garlic cloves in a small bowl, with the back of a spoon or fork, mash until it forms an almost paste like consistency.
Add butter, Parmesan cheese and parsley in the bowl with the garlic.
Spread evenly on each half of the bread.
Bake for about 15 minutes or until edges and the cheese start to turn a golden brown.
Slice and serve.
