Sourdough Garlic Bread

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

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.

Serves: 6
