  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley divided use


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Place the bread on a foil lined sheet pan.
  • Cut a grid on the bread by creating vertical cuts, stopping before you hit the bottom crust, then repeating the cuts in a horizontal manner.
  • Place the butter, garlic, Italian seasoning and 1 tablespoon of chopped parsley in a small bowl. Microwave in 20 second increments or until butter is melted.
  • Drizzle the butter into the crevices of the bread. Gently stuff the cheese into the crevices of the bread.
