  • 1 (1 pound) loaf Italian bread

  • 5 tablespoons butter, softened

  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed

  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Cut loaf into ten 1-inch slices.

  2. Mix butter, garlic, oil, oregano, salt, and pepper together in a bowl; spread butter mixture on one side of each slice of bread; arrange bread slices, butter-side up, in a single layer on a baking sheet.

  3. Cook under the preheated broiler until slightly brown, checking frequently so they do not burn, about 3 minutes.

  4. Top bread slices with cheese and return to broiler until cheese is slightly brown and melted, about 2 minutes. Serve hot.
