Today, I had an abundance of fresh garlic on hand and I had just roasted a dozen heads to use as needed. I used four of the roasted heads to make the best garlic bread I’ve ever tasted.
This bread is so good dipped in Clam Chowder or Creamy White Bean, Italian Sausage, and Vegetable Soup.
If you’re in the mood for pasta, try serving dinner with this bread and spaghetti sauce with ground beef for an amazing family meal.
Roasted Garlic Parmesan Bread
- 1 extra long baguette or standard loaf of french bread
- 6 tablespoons butter room temperature
- 4 heads roasted garlic cloves removed, about 4 tablespoons worth
- 3 tablespoons Parmesan or Pecorino Romano cheese finely grated
- Preheat the oven to broil. Slice the bread 1/2"-1" thick, depending on how you like it best. (I am partial to the long crusty baguettes and I tend to slice them fairly thin, so they will be crisp.) Combine the butter, garlic and cheese in a small bowl and mash together until well combined. Slather the butter mixture generously over the sliced bread.
- Place the coated pieces of pieces of bread onto a large baking sheet. Broil for about 2 ½ - 3 minutes, just until the edges of the bread have browned and the topping is bubbling and lightly browned. Remove from oven and serve warm. Enjoy!
