  • 3/4 cup butter softened
  • 1 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 loaf Italian bread cut into 1/2 inch slices
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • In a small bowl, mix together butter, minced garlic, garlic powder, parsley, and parmesan cheese.
  • Slice the Italian bread into 1/2 inch slices, and spread the butter mixture over each piece.
  • Place on a baking tray.
  • Sprinkle with a little paprika.
  • Bake for 10 minutes until butter mixture is melted, and bread is slightly toasted.
  • Remove from oven, and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese
  • Turn oven to broil, and return bread to oven, broiling until cheese is melted, and edges are golden brown (1-2 minutes)


Keep a close eye on the broiling as you do not want to burn the bread, and it can go from beautifully golden to burnt in a matter of minutes. Garnish with additional fresh parsley if desired.
