  • 1 loaf Italian or French Bread
  • 5 Cloves Garlic minced
  • 5 tbsp Butter
  • ½ tsp Oregano
  • 1 dash Red Pepper Flakes if desired
  • ½ cup Parmesan Cheese grated


  • Place butter and garlic into a small sauce pan over low heat.
  • Allow the butter to slowly melt and the garlic to soften then add oregano and red pepper flakes if using. If garlic is soft, turn off heat and stir ingredients together.
  • Cut bread into roughly one inch thick slices and place on a cookie sheet.
  • Spoon butter mixture onto each slice of bread. Make sure to get a some garlic on each slice, but don't over do it, you can always go back and finish the butter mixture if you were too conservative.
  • Sprinkle with grated parmesean cheese, add as much as you're into here!
  • Turn on your broiler and place bread under it, keeping a careful watch to remove when brown, but not yet on fire.
