Hasselback Cheesy Garlic Bread
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.Advertisement
Cut vertical slits in the baguette, stopping just before you cut through so that the slices stay connected at the bottom. Space the slits about 1/2 inch apart. Place the baguette on a large baking sheet; bake until lightly toasted, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and let stand until cool enough to handle, about 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, stir oil, garlic and pepper together in a small bowl. Combine cheese and parsley in another small bowl. Using a basting brush, lightly coat the inside of each slit and the crust with the oil mixture. Fill each slit with the cheese mixture. Bake until the cheese melts and the bread is very toasted, 8 to 10 minutes more.
