1 large loaf Ciabatta bread
4 – 6 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/2 cup room temperature butter, cut into pieces
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
optional 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Preheat oven to 425°F/220°C
Using a serrated knife cut your bread into thick slices leaving about 1/2- inch at the bottom uncut. Be careful not to cut the bread all the way through, as you need the bread to hold together to contain all the filling.
In a medium bowl combine the remaining ingredients with a fork.
