Garlic bread is a real crowd pleaser, and it only gets better with the addition of gooey cheese. In this recipe, a country loaf is scored and filled with richly flavored garlic butter. Add cheese and herbs, and bake until the bread is nice and crisp before serving.
This recipe demands a bit more effort than some because it uses both raw minced and roasted whole garlic cloves. The added time and effort this takes allows you to take advantage of both the mellow sweetness of roasted garlic and the sharper, piquant attraction of raw. You can easily roast the garlic in advance to cut down on prep time the day you make it.
