  • In a small sauce pan over medium heat add the butter and olive oil till heated, add the sliced garlic and cook until the garlic turns light brown, remove from head and stir in the cheese and salt until smooth
  • Top the bread with the buttery cheese mix and bake for 12-14 minutes, remove, set oven to broil, and put the bread back in until browned and bubbly
