Calories: 217 KCAL

INGREDIENTS

·         1/2 cup salted butter, softened to room temperature (1 stick)
·        1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese (use the good stuff - no jarred or canned varieties)
·         1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
·         3-4 cloves garlic, grated or very finely minced
·         1/2 tsp grated lemon zest (optional but recommended)
·         1 tsp Italian seasoning blend
·         1/4 tsp cracked black pepper
·         pinch of kosher salt
·     1 loaf of artisan bread (my personal favorites are sesame seed or any other bread with a tight crumb to hold the butter)
·         1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (optional)



INSTRUCTIONS

1.   Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.  Set a baking sheet aside.
2. While oven is preheating, combine butter, Parmesan cheese, olive oil, garlic, lemon zest, Italian seasoning blend, cracked black pepper, and salt in a small mixing bowl.  Mix together with a small rubber spatula or wooden spoon.  Set aside.
3.   Using a bread knife, slice bread into roughly 1 inch thick slices, not cutting all the way through, just down to about 1/2 inch from the bottom.
4. Spread an even coating of butter mixture on both sides of the bread slices.  Be generous, and if there's any butter left over, refrigerate in an airtight container.  For an extra cheesy version, add some shredded mozzarella cheese in between each slice of bread.
5.  Wrap loaf of bread completely in aluminum foil (this will likely take two pieces, one on the bottom and one on the top).  Place wrapped bread on baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.
6.   Open the top of the foil and bake another 5 minutes to let the top of the bread toast a little.
7.   Serve hot and enjoy!
