1loaf Italian breadcut into 1/2 inch slices
1/2cupshredded 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.
