Garlic Bread with Cheese :-))

Garlic Bread with Cheese !!!
Garlic bread consists of Italian or French bread slices, spread on both sides by garlic butter and heated in the oven. There are many variations, including bread brushed with olive oil and sprinkled with minced garlic and herbs. It can also be grilled. I have tried all 3 options grill, microwave and oven.We used to crave for Pizza Hut and Little Italy’s garlic bread. Aha!! It used to be lip smacking. I knew my hubby’s craving for garlic bread & I make sure I prepare it at least twice a month. :-)
You can serve it with any dip or pasta or with hot coffee.
Preparation time: 15 minutes
· 4 – Bread Slices (preferred French Bread)
· 2 tsp - butter (non Salted)
· 3  tsp olive oil
· 2 tsp - garlic paste
· 3 crushed garlic cloves
· ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
· Chili Flakes as per taste
· Oregano as per taste
· Salt as per taste

1. Mix butter, olive oil, garlic paste, salt, oregano and chili flakes together. Add crushed garlic cloves to the mixture.
2. Apply this mixture to both sides of bread slices.
3. Sprinkle cheese on bread slice.
4. Arrange it in a microwave metal tray & keep it on medium power for 2 minutes.

Serve the hot garlic bread with any dip or with pasta of your choice or just with a cup of hot coffee.The aroma of garlic and oregano fills the entire house within minutes. :-)

Tips:· Use French Bread it tastes good :-)
· In my LG microwave I tried 2 slices first by keeping it in medium power for 2 minutes. It turned out good. If you keep more than that the crust becomes very hard. Hence, be prepared to perform few trials until you get a hang of your microwave. :-)
· Try doing with more of olive oil and less butter for those who don't want to use more butter in there cooking it tastes great!!
