Garlic Bread with Mint & Parsley


  • ¼ cup EVOO

  • ¼ cup unsalted butter

  • 6 cloves garlic, finely chopped or grated

  • 1 tsp. crushed red pepper

  • 1 loaf Italian semolina bread, split lengthwise

  • 1 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano or Pecorino Romano (or a combination of both)

  • ½ cup each fresh mint and fresh flat-leaf parsley, combined, then finely chopped


  • Step 1

    In a small saucepan, heat the EVOO, butter, garlic, and crushed red pepper over medium until the garlic bubbles but doesn’t brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove the garlic butter from the heat.

  • Step 2

    Preheat the broiler. Arrange the bread on a large rimmed baking sheet and broil until lightly golden. Brush the bread with the garlic butter, top with the cheese, and broil until lightly brown. Let the bread cool for 2 to 3 minutes, then top with the herbs. Cut the bread into pieces before serving
