Parmesan Garlic Bread

by katerina on September 26, 2013

We make garlic bread quite often by lathering up crusty bread with fresh garlic and butter and baking it. So when I branched out a bit I had some very positive reactions, in fact my husband started complimenting the bread itself not realizing the minor adjustments I had made.

Garlic Bread

Still a long way from the gluttonous cheesy bread on offer by major pizza chains, the addition of cheese just adds more salt and depth; perfect for your everyday spaghetti dinner. Be very careful not to burn the garlic when it is baking uncovered or you will end up with an undesirable bitter flavour.

Parmesan Garlic Bread

(serves 2-4)

1/4 cup soft butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup Parmesan
freshly ground black pepper
a loaf of french bread (depending on size, you may only use 1/2)

1. Preheat oven to 400F.

2. Combine the butter and the garlic thoroughly in a small bowl (Tip: do this a few hours ahead and the flavours will really meld). Slice the bread in half lengthwise. Spread the butter over top and close the bread back on itself. Wrap in aluminum foil and place in the oven for 20 minutes.

3. Remove the bread from the oven and open it onto a baking sheet face up. Sprinkle with the Parmesan and some cracked black pepper. Place back in the oven for 5-10 minutes.

4. Check on the bread, you want the cheese to have melted, but you don't want the garlic to brown.

5. Remove and serve hot.
