Ingredients: 1 loaf sourdough or artisan loaf, cut in half lengthwise
1 stick of butter, softened
3 cloves fresh minced garlic
2 tbsp smoked paprika, divided
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tsp Italian seasoning

1. Line a large baking sheeting with parchment paper. Set aside. Preheat your oven to 375*.
2. In a large bowl combine the softened butter, garlic, smoked paprika, salt, pepper, Italian seasoning and grated parmesan. Mix everything well. Set aside.
