Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 large (1 pound loaf) of Italian bread
  • Chopped parsley for garnish
  • 2 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning
  • Cilantro for garnish (optional)
  • For the Butter:
  • 1 stick butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Fresh cracked black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons fresh garlic, chopped fine or minced through a garlic press
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Make the butter mixture by adding the butter, salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, garlic and parsley to a small bowl and mixing together.
  3. Split the bread open lengthwise and place each half, cut side up, on a baking sheet.
  4. Divide the butter between the halves, spreading the butter to cover the bread completely. Sprinkle the taco seasoning evenly over the tops of the 2 halves of bread.
  5. Bake the bread in the oven for 10 minutes, then remove the bread from the oven.
  6. Add the cheese evenly to each half of the garlic bread and place back into the oven for 5-7 minutes until the cheese has melted.
  7. Slice and serve, garnished with fresh lime zest and fresh cilantro (optional)
  8. Freezing the Garlic Bread:
  9. Make the recipe and let the bread cool completely. Put the halves back together then wrap in foil and put into a freezer bag.
  10. To reheat the bread from frozen, thaw the bread completely in the refrigerator. Place the bread into a 350 degrees preheated oven for 20-25 minutes until heated through. Open up the bread and serve as is or broil for an additional 2-3 minutes.
