Bubbly Garlic Bread


Last week I made a big pot of red sauce to have with spaghetti and jazzed it up (though the sausage in the sauce was pretty jazzy all by itself) with some of this Bubbly Garlic Bread. I actually prefer plain bread, but given a choice my husband will always choose big fat Bubbly Garlic Bread. It certainly has more calories than plain bread, or even plain bread with butter, but it's very yummy as an occasional treat.

Bubbly Garlic Bread
serves 6 - 10

1 loaf Italian bread, store bought or homemade
1 stick salted butter, softened
garlic powder
8 oz. shredded mozzarella
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

Preheat broiler in oven and place rack on top shelf.
Slice loaf of bread in half length wise (so you have a top and a bottom). Spread half of butter on each cut surface. Sprinkle with garlic powder to taste -- I use about 1 teaspoon for each half.
Divide Parmesan and shredded mozzarella over each half, with the mozzarella on top. Place on a cookie sheet (covered with foil for easy clean up) and place on top rack of oven. Broil, watching so it doesn't burn too much -- a little is o.k. -- until cheese is bubbly. Cut each half crosswise and serve.

I made this tonight and we loved it. I almost burnt it but look back in the oven just in time!
