Prep Time 10 minutes

Total Time 25 minutes


  • 1 large loaf of bread unsliced
  • ½ cup of butter
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh oregano
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley
  • 2 cups of shredded mozzarella
  • ¼ cup of grated parmesan
  • chilli flakes optional


  • Preheat oven to 350°F or 180°C. Prepare baking sheet with baking paper.
  • Cut a diagonal pattern in the bread, using a serrated knife. Cut all the way down to the bottom, without cutting through the base of the loaf.
  • Mix together the butter, oregano, thyme and parsley.
  • Using your fingers, or a knife, pry open the diamonds, and smother with the butter mixture. Shake the chilli flakes between the diamonds.
  • Stuff the mozzarella between bread cracks. It will look messy. Pick up any cheese that fell on the baking tray and put inside the loaf.
  • Cover with foil and bake for 10 minutes until loaf is warm and cheese is melted. Important to use the foil so the cheese doesn't burn. Remove the foil and sprinkle the parmesan cheese on the loaf.
  • Bake for another 5 minutes until melted and golden brown. Sprinkle with more parsley before serving.


Instead of using shredded cheese, you can use cut cheese from a block to stuff between the cut bread pieces.
