My Insanely Delicious Garlic Bread
























If you put a loaf of warm garlic bread just out of the oven in front of me and a big slice of the most decadent chocolate cake with rich creamy frosting, I would take the bread. Hands down. Every single time.  I am one of those people that loves hot bread just out of the oven with lots of butter. I have been known to eat too much bread and not have enough room for dinner when it finally comes to the table.  I'm about to share with you my insanely delicious Garlic Bread and you'll know why.
Insanely Delicious Garlic Bread
1 loaf Vienna or Italian bread
6 cloves garlic, minced
½ cup chopped fresh parsley
½ cup room temperature butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese (not the powdered kind)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Make your garlic herb butter first.  In a small bowl combine the garlic and fresh parsley. Next add the butter, olive oil, Parmesan cheese and salt and pepper and mix until smooth.  Take the time to grate your own Parmesan cheese.  Set aside.















Prepare your loaf of bread.  You can use whatever bread you like. But I like a loaf of Italian bread for this recipe.

















With a serrated knife, slice your loaf of bread into thick slices without cutting all the way to the bottom. Leave about ½- inch at the bottom uncut.  Don't cut all the way through.  

Next, using a rubber spatula, add the butter mixture between each slice using all the filling you have made. I smear it in between the slices and all over the front.  Then wrap it tightly in aluminum foil.

















Place the bread on a baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes. Uncover the bread and bake for an additional 5 minutes to crisp up the outside of the bread.
