This cheesy garlic bread is buttery, aromatic, and perfectly crispy on the outside. Using the top and bottom heating elements of the Anova Precision Oven ensures that the bread crisps up on the bottom at the same time that the cheese melts and browns. Note: Use high-quality butter for even more flavorful bread. I love using French or another European butter in this recipe.
