Cheesy Garlic Bread by Sherri

Source: Easy Everyday Cooking card


1 loaf French bread, unsliced 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened 2 cloves garlic, halved 1 tsp. dried parsley 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese


(Make ahead - Combine butter, garlic, parsley and Parmesan cheese and store in refrigator up to 3 days in advance. Soften at room temp. before using.) Preheat oven to 375 F. Cut slices down the length of bread loaf at 1 inch intervals, without cutting all the way through. Rub slices and top of loaf with cut sides of garlic halves. Mince garlic. Combine butter, garlic, parsley and Parmesan in a small bowl. Spread butter mixture between bread slices and on top of loaf. Wrap bread in foil, leaving top partially uncovered. Bake until heated through, about 15 minutes.
(Money saving tip: Look for leftover, reduced-price bread loaves in the supermarket bakery section. Make several loaves, uncooked, and freeze.)
