  • ½ cup butter softened
  • 3 tablespoons finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon very finely minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons minced parsley
  • ½ teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1 baguette


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. In a small bowl, combine the butter, Parmesan, garlic, parsley and salt.
  • Cut the baguette into 1/2-inch or so slices, but don’t cut all the way though the bread; the goal is for the slices to remain attached at the bottom.  One easy way to keep yourself from cutting through the bread is to place a chopstick alongside each side of the bread and slice the bread stopping when the knife hits the chopsticks. You can use the handles of wooden spoons as well.
  • Spread the garlic butter on each side of all of the slices of the bread, trying to keep the bread attached at the bottom.
  • Place the baguette on a large piece of foil and pull the foil up around the sides of the bread, but not over the top—you want the top to be able to brown.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until the bread is hot and the top is lightly browned and crusty.   Serve hot.
