- 3 bulbs garlic
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 (1 pound) loaf Italian bread
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley (optional)
- 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
Set the oven to broil. Slice the loaf of bread in half horizontally, and place cut side up on a baking sheet. Squeeze the cloves of garlic from their skins into a medium bowl. Stir in the butter, parsley, and Parmesan cheese until well blended. Spread onto the cut sides of the bread.
Broil for about 5 minutes, until toasted.
**I found this recipe online the other day and adapted it to use a sub roll (to serve 2). I roasted 4 cloves of garlic covered with the olive oil for about 15 minutes. I then sliced the sub roll in half horizontally, and placed it cut side up on a baking sheet. Then, I squeezed the garlic from their skins into a bowl and stirred in 3 Tbsp. of melted butter, and 1 Tbsp. of fresh parsley(we like a lot of fresh parsley, you could cut this amount down to taste). Stirred that up and spread on the two halves of bread. I then sprinkled 1 Tbsp. of Parmesan on each half and sprinkled a dash of garlic powder (or garlic salt) on each half. Broiled for about 3-5 minutes. It was SO tasty, we had it two nights in a row! :)
