Garlic, basil and mozzarella bread

A quick and easy thing to have under your belt is homemade garlic bread! It's something I don't think i'd really buy again now unless I really had to, as this recipe is so easy and tasty. It always impresses people when you say you've made it yourself (even though its not fully homemade) and adds a little something special to an everyday meal.
1 loaf crusty bread e.g ciabatta, french stick
125g butter
2-3 cloves crushed garlic
a few leaves of basil or parsley

Slice your loaf the way garlic bread looks, with even slices going about 3/4 of the way deep. Or slice the ciabatta in half length ways for extra easy-ness!
Melt the butter in a bowl until soft but not melted. Add the crushed garlic cloves. Chop the herb of your choice and add to the butter mixture.
Spoon the mixture into the gaps of the garlic bread or spread along both halves.
You could now top with a little parmesan or mozzarella to make cheesey garlic bread!
Bake in the oven for 5-10 minutes on high, or until the bread has lightly coloured, the butter melted, and the cheese golden (if your using cheese).
