1Heat oven to 400 degrees. Cover a baking sheet with foil. Slice the bread in 1.5" slices ALMOST all the way thru. You want the bread to hold together, but be able to break it apart easily after its cooked.
2Place the butter in a glass measure, put the garlic thru a garlic press and add to the butter and melt the butter in the microwave. Add about an equal amount of dry red wine. Alternatively, you can slice the garlic thinly and place a sliver between each slice, but I like this bread garlicky, and the pressed garlic pumps up the garlic factor.
3Drizzle the garlic-butter-wine mixture between each slice and pour over the top. You want to have bits of garlic between each slice and you want the bread sitting in a puddle of the garlic-butter-wine so the crust gets crunchy.
4Bake for about 20 mins @400 degrees until the crust is crunchy & crisp and mange. It’s great with Italian food, beef dishes, Italian Chicken with Peppers, but not cereal.
