Spicy, Toasty, Cheesy Garlic Bread

Okay....since my garlic bread is in the bottom picture in the lasagna post below, you need that recipe, too.  Sorry, not trying to sabotage your diet. (BTW, see the note below for the gluten-free garlic bread version.)

Spicy, Toasty, Cheesy Garlic Bread

  •  2 loaves of good Italian or Ciabatta (the fave) , sliced across the loaf lengthwise so you have 2 slabs of bread for each loaf
  • 8 ounces fresh grated parmesan cheese (go ahead, use the GOOD stuff...Parmesano Reggiano!)
  • 1/2 head garlic, peeled
  • 3 sticks butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (you know I like MORE!)
In food processor with steel blade, process garlic until finely minced.  Then add the rest of the ingredients and process until smooth and well-blended.  Spread on bread and bake at 400 until lightly, beautifully browned.
NOTE:  For gluten-free garlic bread, spread the garlic butter on Udi's gluten-free hamburger bun halves and bake as above.
