1 loaf French bread

1/2 cup salted butter (softened)

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon dried basil

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

4 cloves garlic (minced)

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper


Slice bread and place on place on baking sheet

Slice the bread in half lengthwise and place each half on a baking sheet.

Make garlic butter spread

In a small bowl, mix together the butter, olive oil, basil, oregano, parmesan, minced garlic, salt and pepper. Mix it well.

Spread garlic butter

Spread the butter in a generous, even layer on each half of the French bread.


Put the baking sheet underneath the broiler in the oven. Broil until it just starts to brown. Watch it closely because how fast it cooks is dependent on how hot your broiler is and how close your rack is to the heating element. It shouldn't take more than 5 minutes.
