Cheesy Garlic Bread, Revisited…

The original ingredients were adapted from a restaurant I frequently visited in the Bay Area.  I would often purchase the garlic spread by the pint so I can enjoy it at home.   For many years now I have learned to perfect the recipe in order to differentiate from the original…thus making it my own.Cheesy Garlic BreadIngredients:

¨ Day-old French Baguette, sliced in half

¨ 1/2 Cup Olive Oil Mayonnaise

¨ 1/2 Cup Shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano

¨ 1 Tbsp. Italian Herb Seasoning (or similar)

¨ 6 cloves Fresh garlic, chopped (with skin)

¨ 1 Tbsp. Cold-Press Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Recipe Preparation:

Preheat oven to broil at 500° degrees F

  1. Line two separate foils in a large baking pan.  Cut the baguette in half, then split the halves.  Place each halves on the two separate foils.
  2. Mix-in all the ingredients in a small bowl.
  3. Place the cheesy garlic spread mix on each half of the baguette
  4. Wrap the baguette in foil half way so the top of the bread is exposed to heat.
  5. Place in the oven for about 2 minutes or just until the top cheese is melted and golden brown.
  6. Cool for approximately 2 minutes before cutting the bread.

Yields approx 16 sliced pieces.
