SERVES: 10-12




  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F or 190 C or British Gas Mark 5.
  • Dice all the garlic very finely.
  • In a medium sauce pan, melt a quarter of butter so you are left with a 1/4 cup remaining of the original 1/2 cup of butter, then add the garlic to the melting butter and saute until garlic is golden.
  • Add remaining butter to sauce pan until all is melted.
  • Slice the french bread lengthwise creating two halves, then cut 3" thick slices across each half, but do not cut all the way through yet.
  • Place the two halves of french bread next to each other on a cookie sheet covered with cooking foil.
  • Next, slowly and evenly pour the garlic and butter over EACH HALF of the french bread.
  • Let the garlic butter melt into the bread.
  • Set sauce pan aside but DO NOT clean it yet.
  • Place the two lenghtwise halves of the french bread back together to form one bread stick.
  • Bake uncovered until the outside is slightly crispy and the inside is very warm.
  • While bread is heating, pour the whipping cream into the buttery sauce pan, add the freshly grated parmesan cheese and the rest of the spices.
  • Stir slowly for a while until sauce is thick and rich and most of the parmesan cheese has melted into the sauce.
  • This may take 15 minutes or so.
  • Note: You can add more cheese to help thicken the cream at any time.
  • When bread is warm and sauce is ready, open the bread back up, place in a serving dish and pour the sauce all over it.
  • This may need two people to get the sauce into the cracks of the slices: one to pour and the other uses two forks to open it up.
  • But choose the second person carefully.
  • You don't want someone who can't control their drools.
  • The cream should be all over the bread and the serving dish.
  • You will need a knife and spatula to serve your Artery Bread and be ready to wipe the brow of your guests, they will be in heaven.
