The Trick to Making the Easiest Garlic Party Bread Ever

The Trick to Making the Easiest Garlic Party Bread Ever

Forget slicing slim singles out of that entire loaf! Instead, cut 3/4 of the way through a firm loaf of bread and slather on toppings like melted butter + garlic and cheese. Then bake and break!

What You’ll Need

  • firm sourdough bread  ( 1 round (about 1 pound) loaf )
  • salted or unsalted butter  ( 1/2 cup (4 ounces or 115 grams) )
  • coarse or flaky salt  ( 1/2 teaspoon )
  • garlic, minced  ( 4 medium cloves )
  • red pepper flakes or freshly ground black pepper to taste  ( Pinch or two )
  • finely grated cheese (I used a mix of 2/3 firm aged cheeses — pecorino and asiago — and 1/3 fontina for meltiness)  ( 1 cup )
  • finely minced fresh herbs (I used 1/2 each rosemary and oregano; use more to taste)  ( 1 teaspoon )
  • extra fresh herbs (such as chives or parsley) to finish (optional)  ( 1 tablespoon )
