Yield: Serves: 6
This garlic bread is equally delicious with either plain French bread or sourdough. Sourdough is chewier and its subtle tang blends seductively with the oil, garlic and cheese.


1 large sourdough baguette, halved lengthwise
4 to 6 large cloves garlic, halved
4 to 6 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons freshly grated parmesan cheese


1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
2. Cut the baguette halves into thirds for 6 large pieces of bread. Rub each generously with garlic and then brush with olive oil. Sprinkle with cheese. Transfer to a baking sheet and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until lightly browned. Serve hot.
