Hot & Crusty Garlic-Cheese Bread
by Jes Mostek
serves: 8
  1 loaf   French Bread
  1/2 c.   unsalted butter, melted
  2 clove   fresh garlic, minced (or 1/2 tsp. powder per clove)
  1 tsp.   salt
  3 c.   grated mozzarella cheese
  Preheat oven to 350F. Cut 2 pieces of aluminum foil about one foot long (about 6 longer than the length of the bread).

In a small bowl, combine melted butter with garlic powder and salt. With serrated bread knife, slice bread lengthwise. Lay out bread on one of the sheets of foil. Using a pastry brush, a spoon, or your fingers, spread melted butter mixture on both cut sides of the bread. Sprinkle the cheese over one side of the bread.

Put the bread back together like a sandwich and wrap completely in the foil. Bake at 350F for about 20 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Cut into slices and serve hot.
