Cheesy Buttery Garlic Ciabatta Bread

Image

This is so simple to make but so delicious to eat. Most importantly is to get a really good loaf of bread.  I start out with 1 stick of unsalted softened butter. To that I add 2 cloves of grated garlic, 2 tablespoons of fresh chopped Italian flat leaf parsley, 3 tablespoons of grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, a pinch of kosher salt, and 1 teaspoon of black pepper. I mix all this together until everything is combined. I slice a whole loaf of Ciabatta bread down the center and spread this buttery goodness of each half.

Place both halves back together.

Now I wrap the whole loaf in foil and bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.

After the 35 minutes is up, unwrap the bread and spread around 8 ounces of grated Mozzarella, and 4 tablespoons of grated Parmigiano -Reggiano cheese on each half and place the bread underneath the the broiler, on the middle rack, with the oven cracked open. When the cheese is bubbly and golden brown, it’s done. Image

Thai Purple Orchid Cafe & Grocery

Image

I heard about this hidden gem from one of my readers. She recently told me I needed to check out Thai Purple Orchid Café. I’ve been doing a bit of research on my own, so on my next day off, Steve and I are going on a short road trip. I’ll no doubt tell you all about our experience. For now, this is just a little something for you to chew on. For more information visit their website at www.purpleorchidcafe.com.
