Parmesan Garlic Bread

Here are the ingredients you will need.
Start by pressing the three cloves of garlic into a medium bowl.
Mince up a shallot so it measures one tablespoon.
Add the shallot to the garlic in the medium bowl.
Next, mince up the fresh parsley and measure out a tablespoon.
Add that to the bowl along with the salt and pepper. Remember to go a little easy on the salt because Parmesan tends to be a little salty as well.
Now add the *gasp* two sticks of butter and the two tablespoons {give or take} of freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
Mix until combined.
And set aside, just for now.
Grab your loaf of Italian bread.
Using a bread knife, slice lengthwise in half and place on a sheet pan.
Spread heavily and evenly all over one half with half of the butter mixture, and the rest on the other half of the bread. I prefer to use aluminum sheet pans just to get the bottoms of the bread crispy. Place under the broiler until golden and toasty!
Remove and slice immediately.
Parmesan Garlic Bread:
{Serves 4-6}
1 loaf of Italian Bread
2 stick of Unsalted Butter, softened at room temperature
3 cloves of Garlic {two if large}, pressed
2 tablespoons Parmesan Cheese, freshly grated
1 tablespoon Shallots, minced
1 tablespoons Parsley, minced
Salt and freshly cracked Black Pepper, to taste
Combine the garlic, shallots, parsley, salt, black pepper, softened butter and Parmesan. Mix until all the ingredients are combined. Slice the Italian loaf lengthwise and heavily smear half of the butter mixture on each of the halves. Place under broiler {on low} and toast until golden and crispy, rotating the pan if necessary, about 5-8 minutes. Watch carefully so it doesn’t burn!
