Ingredients
  

  • 1 (1 lb) loaf French or Italian bread
  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 4 large cloves garlic minced
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Cut the bread in half horizontally.
  • In a small bowl, combine the softened butter, minced garlic, and pinch of salt. Stir until well combined.
  • With a butter knife, spread the garlic butter mixture evenly over the two bread halves.
  • Place the bread halves on a large baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes or until slightly golden brown on the edges.
  • Remove the bread from the oven at 10 minutes and sprinkle the bread halves evenly with Parmesan cheese. Turn the oven to broil and place the bread back in the oven. Broil for 2 to 3 minutes until the edges of the bread begin to toast and the cheese is melted. Don't walk away, watch the bread very carefully because it will toast quickly. You don't want to burn the bread.
  • Remove from the oven and garnish with fresh parsley. Cut into thick slices and serve warm.

Notes

For Soft Garlic Bread: you can butter both halves of bread and put them back together, buttered sides touching. Wrap loaf completely in foil and bake for 15 minutes or until the butter is melted and bread is soft. Remove from the oven and cut into slices. I don't use Parmesan cheese when I make super soft garlic bread.
