Taste: Oh my gosh you HAVE to taste this Private Selection Roasted Garlic & Herb butter, it is positively heavenly. Really, all the butters are lovely. When combined with Parmesan cheese and slathered all over bread, it’s perfect!
Texture: Crunchy, chewy, buttery, wonderful.
Ease: So ridiculously easy.
Appearance: Who could resist a piece of this garlic bread?
Pros: Quick, easy, tasty.
Cons: A little indulgent.
Would I make this again? Absolutely.
A few weeks ago Private Selection, the gourmet and artisanal-inspired brand found in Kroger stores such as Fry’s, Fred Meyer, King Soopers, Ralphs, and many others, offered to send me their Finishing Butters to sample and share with you guys.
This above photo is from my Instagram. What a fun package this was to open! Inside were three sweet butters including Cinnamon Brown Sugar, Caramel Sea Salt, and Honey. I’ve had so much fun experimenting with these butters slathered over waffles, pastries, and breads.
There was also three savory butters including Roasted Garlic & Herbs, Lemon, Garlic & Herb, and Lemon Pepper. I love these because they instantly amplify the flavor of any meat, veggie, or bread to make a quick and easy meal. I used the Roasted Garlic & Herbs to make this easy cheesy garlic bread. The other butters haven’t lasted long, they’re quite addicting!! I particularly love the Honey Finishing Butter over my Ultimate Dinner Rolls.
Slice the ciabatta bread in half horizontally and spread the butter over the halves. Sprinkle with the parsley, spreading into the butter. Place on a broiler-safe baking sheet, buttered-side up. Bake for 10 minutes.
Remove from pan and sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Adjust oven rack to the highest position and heat the broiler on high. Broil for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbling and golden brown. Watch carefully.
Remove from oven and let cool for several minutes before slicing. Serve.
Though I find most ciabatta loaves to be quite large, feel free to use an entire loaf for this recipe.
