Garlic Bread with Cheese

  My version

Crispy yet soft slices of French loaf infused with garlic flavour, topped with cheese and herbs.. MmMmm.. :) As soon as you pop it into the oven, the garlicky, cheesy aroma will bring everyone in your house over to your kitchen.. As soon as it's done, make sure you grab a piece for yourself, 'coz even before you know, it's all going to disappear!! Its amazingly delicious, and make sure you serve it fresh and hot out of the oven.

Well, when I started typing this recipe, I realized that it's really hard to give exact measures of the ingredients. Well, I'll try to do my best to give an approximate measure, but, try using your logic to incorporate an appropriate measure.

Ingredients :

Fresh Baguette (Crusty French Loaf)

Large/Medium/Small loaf as per your requirement.
Mozzarella cheese

As required
Margarine or butter

for 1 large loaf - 1 tablespoon
Olive oil

1 tablespoon or more

1 clove crushed into fine paste

to taste
Fresh Parsley

Finely chopped
Dried Oregano

1/2 teaspoon

I like Whole-wheat breads. So I've used whole wheat French loaf. You can also use loaf made with plain flour. If you do not want cheese, you can skip the cheese.

Preparation Method :

Pre-heat your oven. I only ignite the top burner, just to melt the cheese and maintain the softness of the bread.
Diagonally slice the loaf into1 inch thick pieces. Use a serrated knife. 

Finely chop fresh parsley.

Blend in the margarine, garlic paste and some olive oil into a fine mix.

Lay foil on a baking tray and place the bread slices. Brush the top of each slice with the garlic mix. If you are in a hurry, you can also use ready-made garlic paste instead of this mix.

Top each slice with a generous amount of Mozzarella.

Sprinkle on top the chopped parsley, salt and dried oregano.

Drizzle some olive oil on top.

Place into oven a little away from the flame.

When you see the cheese bubbling and having golden brown burns on top, its ready. If you don't want it to brown you can remove as soon as it bubbles. 

I like it brown and the bread delicately crisp. Believe me, it smells really tempting. 

Serve it hot and quick. Kids are going to love you for this one! :)

Enjoy!! :)
