Ingrients & Directions

1 Long loaf of Italian bread
– or French bread,
– (about 10 oz)
1/2 c Unsalted butter
– slightly softened
2 md Garlic cloves
– peeled and crushed
2 tb Freshly grated Parmesan
1/2 ts Crumbled marjoram
1/2 ts Crumbled basil
1/4 ts Freshly ground black pepper

PREHEAT THE OVEN TO 350F. Using a sharp, serrated knife, cut the
bread down to–but not through–the bottom crust, making slices about
1-inch thick. Cream the butter with the garlic, cheese, marjoram,
basil and pepper. Spread both sides of each slice of bread with the
mixture. Wrap the bread in a large square of heavy-duty aluminum foil
and bake it for 45 minutes. Unwrap the bread and serve while very hot.
