Cheesy Garlic Bread

You won't be disappointed in this garlic bread.
It's cheesy
It's warm and crunchy
It's just waiting for some warm marinara to dip into
5 garlic cloves, grated
8 Tbsp. unsalted butter, softened (1 stick)
1/2 tsp. water
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp. oregano
1 baguette, sliced in half horizontally
2 cups shredded Italian Blend Mozzarella

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Move rack to the 2nd from bottom space.
Saute garlic, 1 Tbsp. butter and water over low heat until garlic is lightly toasted (about 5 minutes)
Combine hot garlic, 7 Tbsp. butter, salt and pepper in a bowl and spread on both halved of the bread.
Put the halves back together and wrap in foil.
Place on baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.
Unwrap bread and place halves, buttered side up on baking sheet.
Bake until it begins to color, about 7 minutes.
Remove from the oven and heat up your broiler.
Sprinkle bread with cheese.  Sprinkle with oregano
Place under the broiler until the cheese is melted and bread is crispy, about 2 to 3 minutes.
Serve with your favorite pasta dish
or just dip into some warm marinara.
