Recipe type: Appetizer/Bread
Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 8
  • Four 4- inch baguette pieces cut in half lengthwise, or eight 1-inch thick slices of crusty Italian bread.
  • 8 tsp softened butter or butter-flavored margarine
  • ½ tsp garlic granules
  • 8 tsp grated Parmesan cheese
  • 4 tsp crushed dried oregano or basil leaves
  • 8 TBSP shredded mozzarella cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 450 F, center rack.
  2. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and arrange the bread pieces in a single layer on it.
  3. Using an offset spatula spread 1 tsp butter or margarine on each slice. I used margarine.
  4. Sprinkle ½ tsp garlic granules evenly on the bread slices. You may add more or less garlic to your taste.
  5. Sprinkle 1 tsp grated Parmesan cheese on each slice.
  6. Sprinkle ½ tsp crushed dried oregano or basil leaves on each slice. I used oregano.
  7. Sprinkle 1 TBSP shredded mozzarella cheese on each slice. Bake in the preheated 450 F oven for 10 minutes, or until golden brown.
I usually use freshly shredded mozzarella, but I happened to have some in the freezer that I had shredded previously, and it worked beautifully.
