Herbed Garlicky Cheese Bread

This garlicky cheese bread should be eaten by all. At the same time. In unison. I love my garlic and if you love garlic, we’ll get along. It goes well with pasta dishes and is a good dish to bring to potlucks and BBQ’s. Provided the host doesn’t mind you sticking this in their oven. If I tote it to a BBQ, I bring it on a tray all ready to go in the oven. One waft of the garlicky goodness and you’ll be asked to bring this often. It’s versatile and you can sub in any cheese or herbs you like to suit your taste. The addition of fresh herb gives this average run-of-the-mill bread a sophisticated taste. If you have them on hand, why not snip some in? Hubby, who claims to not like garlic, devours this bread. If you have roasted garlic on hand, that is a great addition too.-bvox

Herbed Garlicky Cheese Bread
1 demi-baguette or ciabatta
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese (Asiago or fontina cheese is good too)
3 minced cloves of garlic
2 tbsp chopped fresh herbs (I used rosemary, thyme, oregano, chives and sage)
Salt and pepper
Red chili flakes

Cut baguette in half horizontally. In small bowl, mash together butter, cheeses, minced garlic, chopped herbs, salt and pepper and chili flakes; spread over cut sides of baguette. Place baguette on rimmed baking sheet; sprinkle with more cheese if desired. Bake in 425°F oven until cheese is bubbly and bread is golden, about 12 minutes. Cut the bread crosswise into chunks, set them on a platter and watch them disappear.

    I haven’t had Asiago cheese in a while–I need to pick some up and have it on some bread. Mmm.
