French bread gets a flavor boost from Parmesan cheese and fresh herbs. Your bread basket will never be the same!
cup butter or margarine, softened
tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
teaspoon chopped fresh basil leaves or 1/4 teaspoon dried basil leaves
teaspoon chopped fresh oregano leaves or 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
loaf (1 pound) French bread
Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat.
Stir together all ingredients except bread.
Cut bread into 1-inch slices. Spread herb mixture on cut sides of bread. Reassemble loaf. Wrap in piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil; seal securely.
Grill uncovered about 4 inches from medium heat 15 to 20 minutes or until hot.<BR>
<B>Baking Directions:</B> Heat oven to 350°F. Prepare bread and wrap in foil as directed. Bake about 20 minutes or until hot.
No need to follow this recipe to a tee! Why not use other herbs in place of the basil and oregano?
We doubt you'll have leftover bread, but if you do, don't throw it away. Even just a few extra pieces will make great salad croutons. Simply cube the herbed bread and bake in a 350°F oven until toasted. Store in an airtight container.
