Cheesy Garlic Bread

Last month I ended a wonderful eight months working with our local public library. I enjoyed working with a super group of ladies who made it a goal to expand minds and offer daily learning opportunities to all who entered the doors.

Before I left, the ladies staged a delicious going away lunch. I will try to share a few of the recipes along the way. This is the first one that needs to filed under "KEEPER!" Between changing phones and computers in addition to a job, I can't find half of my files. And you know how you THINK you've backed everything up? Well, I've had to hook up my old trusty computer with fingers crossed that I'd find what I needed.


Every time we would have a meal to celebrate a birthday or other special occasion, Kayla would bring this hot loaf of deliciousness loaded with mozzarella and garlic. I would just about hurt myself eating it. She said she just used Valerie Bertinelli's recipe and tweaked it slightly. Kayla said her secret is using a GOOD round loaf of bread. They were kind enough to invite me to Mrs. Cindy's birthday celebration lunch last month and I got to enjoy this cheesy goodness again. Thank you Ladies!

INGREDIENTS:
1 round loaf "good" bread 
Real mozzarella
Shredded cheese (to sprinkle on top)
1-1/2 sticks softened butter
3/4 tsp. salt
Fresh parsley
2 heaping tsp. minced garlic

DIRECTIONS:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Melt butter and saute garlic. Stir in salt and parsley. Set to the side.
  3. Carefully score bread in both directions without cutting through. Pull the sections apart and stuff slices of mozzarella cheese in all the cracks.
  4. Spoon the butter mixture into the cracks and save a little to go over the top.
  5. Wrap in aluminum foil and bake for approximately 25 minutes.
  6. Remove the foil from the top. Sprinkle with shredded cheese and let it bake until the cheese is melted.
 HAVE A SAFE AND HAPPY JULY 4TH!!
