  • 1 loaf Italian Baguette or French Bread
  • 30ml (2 tbsp) butter

  3. Melt the butter gently in a small pan and stir in the oil, garlic and parsley.
  4. Slather the slices with as of the butter mixture as your your heart desires. Make more of the sauce if needed.

  6. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until the bread is golden and the cheese is melted.


  • You can substitute the mozzarella and parmesan with your favourite cheese.
