1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil or mixture of chopped fresh basil and chopped fresh parsley
1 large loaf of French bread
Blend basil and butter; cover and let stand to blend flavors.
Slice loaf into 1-inch slices; spread with butter mixture. On a large, heavy-duty piece of foil, arrange slices in a loaf shape. Wrap with the foil. Heat on grill for 10 to 15 minutes, turning occasionally, or bake at 350° for 25 minutes.
