This could be the very best garlic bread you have even eaten.  I promise!  It took me awhile to figure out this recipe.  It takes no time and only a few ingredients that everyone has in their kitchen.  

Serve this with Spaghetti and Meatballs, Bolognese, salad…

 

Garlic Bread

1 large baguette, sliced length ways
6 Tablespoons butter, softened (I put it in the microwave for 10 seconds)
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 garlic clove, minced (using a garlic press makes this much easier)
Pinch of Salt and a few turns of the pepper grinder
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1 Tablespoon parsley, chopped

Heat oven to 400°

Place baguette cut side up on a foil lined cookie sheet.

In a small bowl, mix together butter, oil, oregano, garlic, salt and pepper.  It should look like a paste. Spread evenly over both pieces of bread.  Sprinkle with Parmesan.

Bake until golden, about 5-7 minutes.  Sprinkle with parsley.

Cut into 2" pieces.
