Garlic, Herb and Parmesan Bread

Garlic, Herb and Parmesan Bread
Recipe by Dragon

The mixed fresh herbs and nutty parmesan cheese make this garlic bread truly memorable. The top is crunchy and the middle is moist and buttery. You won't ever go back to store bought garlic bread once you've tried this beauty. I admit, it's not exactly a low fat savoury treat but you only need one or two (ok, or three) slices to be satisfied. Enjoy!

Serves: 6

Ingredients:
1 large Baguette or French Loaf
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped
1 teaspoon thyme, chopped
2 teaspoons rosemary, chopped
1/2 cup grated parmesan
Salt and Pepper to taste

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Slice baguette in half lengthwise. Prick to top of each slice with a fork.

2. Combine butter, garlic and herbs. Season the butter with some salt and pepper. Generously spread the butter mixture on each slice.

3. Sprinkle the parmesan cheese evenly on top of the butter.

4. Place the bread on a foil lined baking sheet. Place the bread in oven for about 10-15 minutes or until the top is toasted to your liking.

This would be perfect with the dinner I am preparing tonight, I don't mind having 2 or 3, it's the 5th or 6th slice I worry about. Just kidding, my kids would eat it up before I got that many!

Your bread looks fabulous. Colors are pretty too. I'm so glad it has rosemary in it. I adore rosemary and use it sll of the time for many things, even though it is thought to have an aggressive taste. I just hope my bush of rosemary survives this winter in the mountains and I remember to cover it when it gets really cold. Thanks for the great recipe.

I am a complete pushover for garlic bread. In fact, if I had to eat something every night, this would be it.

Apparently it's close to dinner. I'm salivating!!
