Garlic bread with cheese

Ingredients 1/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 clove garlic, minced or 1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 loaf Italian or French bread, sliced 1-inch thick
1 tbsp fresh parsley or 1/4 tsp, dried
1 tbsp fresh oregano or 1/4 tsp, dried
3 tbsp Parmesan cheese
1 cup mozzarella cheese, grated

Instructions

Step one Heat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Step two Mix butter, garlic and herbs. Spread over one side of each slice of bread and place on a baking sheet. Step three
Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Top with grated mozzarella cheese and bake fifteen to twenty minutes, or until hot and cheese is bubbly. Variations There are many variations of garlic bread recipes available. Fresh herbs and spices are often substituted for dried herbs and butter for margarine. Italian and French breads are typical, but baguettes and other types of bread can be used. If you are not adding cheese, you can place the bread slices together after buttering, as if it weren't sliced. Wrap the loaf in foil and skip step three. Parmesan is not a necessary ingredient and can be omitted from the recipe. You can also try other types of cheese instead of the Parmesan and Mozzarella. Romano can replace the Parmesan and Asiago, Swiss, and Cheddar can replace Mozzarella. Some people add onion powder and replace the parsley and oregano with sage and other herbs, fresh or dried. To conclude To make this bread completely from scratch, you could pick out your favourite home-made bread or roll recipe and bake it yourself. Keep in mind that this will require more time and energy, so you have to plan ahead. If you have a bread machine, it won't be a hard thing to do at all, but you will still have to bake it well in advance.
