Cheesy Garlic Bread


1 loaf ciabatta
100 grams butter, at room temperature
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 tablespoons finely 
chopped parsley
sea salt and ground pepper
1 cup shredded mozzarella 
½ cup freshly grated parmesan



Equipment: Line a flat baking tray with foil. 

Preheat the oven to 200°C fan bake. 

Slice the top off the ciabatta so you have a flat surface and place on the tray. Combine the butter, garlic and parsley in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Spread evenly over the bread, taking it right to the edges. Top with the combined cheeses. 

Bake for 10 minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbling, then turn the oven to grill and cook for 1 minute until the top is golden. Slice and serve hot. Makes 1 loaf
