Peppered, Parmesan Garlic Bread.

(Sliced French Stick or Turkish Bread work well or even left over bread rolls sliced on the diagonal. If you’re in a hurry readymade garlic bread is a great
option and you can just add the parmesan cheese before heating.)


1. Your choice of bread.
2.  2 cloves of fresh garlic.
3.  1/3 cup of butter.
4.  Ground black pepper.
5.  Finely grated parmesan cheese.


Finally chop the garlic and combine with the butter. Spread the butter on the bread slices and top with freshly grated black pepper. Cover the buttered surface of the bread with
the grated parmesan cheese and place in oven at 180°C for about 10-15 min.
