Confession: I LOVE BREAD!
That has been a tagline that Oprah has used lately and the truth is that I do love bread too. I couldn't imagine not having bread ever again.
There isn't anything better than pulling hot bread out of the oven, especially if it is slathered in butter, garlic and a little cheese, don't you think? I love to serve this Simple Garlic Cheese Bread with pastas, soups, stews, and just about any type of steak. Let's face it....even alone this bread is satisfying and a welcome treat.
Today's recipe is really simple and one that the whole family is sure to love. Make this Simple Garlic Cheese Bread tonight.
Simple Garlic Cheese Bread
1 loaf French bread
1/4 cup salted butter, softened
1 T minced garlic, or 1 tsp granulated garlic
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/3 cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese
1 T parsley, chopped
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Slice loaf in half lengthwise. Spread softened butter over both halves. Sprinkle garlic over each slice. Wrap in aluminum foil, place on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes.
Remove from the oven and unwrap foil. Sprinkle cheese evenly over each half. Turn oven to broil. Return the bread to the oven and broil for 3-4 minutes or until cheese is melted and edges are starting to brown. Sprinkle with parsley and cut each halve into slices.
