8 tablespoons butter, unsalted, at room temperature
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup cilantro, freshly minced
salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


1. Preheat the grill to medium-high.

2. Cut the bread sharply on the diagonal into 3/4-inch-thick slices.

3. Cream the butter with a whisk in a mixing bowl. Add the garlic, cilantro, salt, and pepper.

4. When ready to cook, generously brush or spread the bread slices on both sides with the cilantro butter. Arrange the bread slices on the hot grate and grill, turning with tongs as needed, until nicely browned, 2 to 4 minutes per side.
