This Garlic Cheese Bread is another ideal accompaniment that goes very well with many starters, such as soups and salads.
Garlic Cheese Bread
1 (14 inches) Baguette
1 (200 g) Fresh Mozzarella, halved and thinly sliced
3 Tbsp Garlic Butter, softened at room temperature
1 Tbsp Chopped Basil Leaves
Freshly Ground Black Pepper
Preheat oven to 400˚F/205˚C.
In a small bowl, mix garlic butter, basil, and season with salt and pepper.
Put the baguette on a chopping board, start from one end, and, cut almost all the way through, at about 1 inch intervals.
Spread the garlic butter mixture and insert cheese in between the slits. Then sprinkle some sea salt and freshly ground black pepper on top of the bread. Wrap the bread in an aluminum foil and place it on a baking tray.
Bake the bread for about 22 to 25 minutes or until the bread turn slightly crispy and the cheese is melted. Serve warm.
