Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F. Mince and mash garlic to a paste with a rounded 1/4 tsp salt using a heavy knife.

Step 2

Stir together butter, oil, and garlic paste in a bowl until combined well; stir in parsley. Halve loaf horizontally and divide butter mixture between halves, spreading it evenly.

Step 3

Divide cheese between halves and spread it in an even layer. Put halves, cheese side up, on a large baking sheet. Cover the bread with a large piece of foil, tenting it slightly on the top and tucking it under the bread.

Step 4

Bake in middle of oven 15 minutes. Remove foil and turn oven to broil. Broil bread until golden, 1 to 3 minutes.
