How to make it

  • With a sharp knife cut the French loaf down the middle LENGTHWISE, to about two inches of each end.
  • Then, without cutting completely through the loaf, cut it into two inch slices as you would if you were simply cutting slices of the bread. Try not to cut completely through the bottom of the slices as you want the cheese and butter to stay in the loaf.
  • Open the loaf up as much as you can without tearing it apart and butter all exposed soft bread, not only the tops, but getting down and buttering the sides, too, but leaving crust unbuttered.
  • Once bread is buttered, you can liberally sprinkle it with garlic and parmesan cheese, trying again to get the sides as well as the top.
  • Make a long bowl for your loaf out of tin foil and set your loaf in it.
  • Melt a cup of butter and pour it over the parmesan cheese. Don't worry if all of the bread is not covered with the melted butter it isn't supposed to be.
  • Completely cover the loaf with tin foil and bake in a 350F oven for approximately 40 or 50 minutes.
  • Remove from oven, remove the top tin foil covering, leaving the loaf in the tin foil bowl you made before baking and serve, allowing people to pull pieces of the bread from the loaf themselves.

    This recipe is perfect for my Baguette with poolish bread I love all of the extra details you have written, especially the part were your guest pull apart the bread themselves, making for some conversation as to who gets the last piece.
