  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • kosher salt
  • pepper
  • 1 (16-ounce) loaf Italian or French bread
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

  2. Mix butter, Parmesan, and garlic. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  3. Slice bread in half length-wise, then spread with butter mixture.

  4. Place bread halves on a baking sheet. Bake until butter is melted and bread is crispy on edges, about 10 minutes.

  5. Cut each bread half into 6 to 8 slices.

  6. Serve immediately. Enjoy!


For a milder garlic flavor, replace the raw garlic with a head of roasted garlic.

If you'd like to save a few calories, you can cut the butter down to 6 tablespoons.
