I kind of feel silly writing about something so simple. This is delicious.
Sliced french bread
2-3 cloves minced fresh garlic
3-4 tablespoons butter
basil paste – in the produce section in a tube
shredded parmesan cheese
I put the butter and garlic in a bowl and microwave it for 40 seconds total but stir after every 10 seconds. Allow to set for 2-5 minutes. Sprinkle the butter on sliced french bread. Cover each bread with a thin layer of basil paste. Sprinkle with parmesan. Bake at 425 for 5-10 minutes until desired firmness in achieved.
I elevate my bread on a wire rack because I like it super crispy. Also, I used to strain the garlic from the butter. My husband likes the garlic pieces so I started just leaving them in. You can do it either way.
