*** For easier peeling, microwave unpeeled garlic cloves on HIGH for 10 to 20 seconds. Cool and store unpeeled cloves in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Save time and satisfy the real cheese lovers in your family by using sliced provolone cheese instead of the grated Parmesan.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- Cut slices down the length of bread loaf at 1-inch intervals, without cutting all the way through. Rub slices and top of loaf with cut sides of garlic halves. Mince garlic.

- Wrap bread in foil, leaving top partially uncovered. Bake until heated through, about 15 minutes.
