DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Take a piece of foil and place whole garlic cloves in it, coating with a generous amount of olive oil.
  • Wrap tightly.
  • Bake until done, 20 min to 1/2 hour.
  • Cloves will be done when sweet smelling, soft and golden brown.
  • Split bread lengthwise.
  • Remove excess dough.
  • Mash roasted garlic with all other ingredients except cheeses.
  • Spread cut surfaces of bread with butter mixture.
  • Sprinkle with parmesan and layer bottom half with mozzarella.
  • Press halves together and wrap tightly in foil.
  • Bake at 350 degrees until outer crust is crispy and cheese is melted, about 15 minutes.
  • Let cool slightly and cut into thick vertical slices.
  • I like it just as it is, crispy outside, moist and chewy (and slightly saturated!) inside, but you could bake this open faced on a cookie sheet for a crisper texture.
  • If you do this, put mozzarella on both sides.
  • You can make the garlic butter ahead of time and refrigerate it.
  • It's also to die for melted over hot pasta!
