The Bread 1 Picture


  • ◾1 loaf French Bread, Split Lengthwise
  • ◾2 sticks Regular (salted) Butter, Softened


Adapted from


Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Spread one stick of softened butter on each half of the loaf. (I know, sounds like a lot. But it's important.)

Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes, or until butter is melted and starting to soak into the bread.

Crank on broiler and broil bread for 3 to 5 minutes, watching the whole time. Remove when butter has started to brown and blacken. Don't under-broil it! The flavor really kicks in when the butter's color changes.

Slice into strips and serve immediately.
