Cheesy Garlic Bread

Serves: 4
Total Calories: 202


1 loaf French bread, unsliced (medium)
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
2 to 4 cloves garlic, halved
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning or dried parsley


Preheat Dutch oven by placing over a few coals and placing fresh briquets around the outside edge of the lid and 2-3 in the middle for about ten minutes. Cut slices down the length of the bread loaf at 1 inch intervals, without cutting all the way through. Rub slices and top if loaf with cut sides of garlic halves, then mince the garlic. Combine butter, garlic, Italian seasoning or dried parsley, and Parmesan in a small bowl. Spread butter mixture between bread slices and on top of loaf. Wrap bread in foil, leaving top partially uncovered. Place wrapped bread in Dutch oven and cover with lid. Bake until heated through, about 15 minutes.

VARIATION: To serve with chicken, substitute chopped chives for the Italian seasoning or parsley, and substitute white cheddar cheese for the Parmesan.
