Cook Time


  • 1 stick butter melted
  • 1 clove garlic grated
  • 1 tbsp. Italian seasoning
  • 1 loaf crusty bread
  • 8 oz. wedge Asiago cheese sliced
  • 1 c. shredded Italian 3-blend cheese
  • 1/4 c. minced parsely


Heat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit In bowl, mix first three ingredients. With serrated knife, slice bread in a grid. Spoon garlic butter into long cuts. 

Place loaf on foil-lined baking sheet. Fill cuts with Asiago; sprinkle with Italian cheese. Wrap in foil. Bake 30 minuntes, uncovering for last 10 min. Sprinkle with parsley. 

Cutting a crosshatch pattern into the loaf creates an abundance of pockets to stuff with goodness. To do: Slice bread lengthwise at 3/4-inch intervals about 3/4 of the way down, then repeat across. Spoon the butter in long cuts and fill horizontal cuts with cheese for evenly distributed flavor throughout.
