Crispy Butter Bread

This is Pioneer Woman's "The Bread" and wow is it ever THE BREAD. Seriously delicious. And you would think that this recipe isn't worth writing down because it's just bread and butter, but the method of baking it takes this bread to a level that is just... good. So so good. It is crispy, but then it's all soft and warm and bready on the inside. Crispy, melty, buttery, wonderful, amazingness... I could go on and on! I'm calling it Crispy Butter Bread because that's what my kids named it last night.

Crispy Butter Bread

1 loaf French bread, split lengthwise
1 1/2 cups of butter, softened (PW uses 2 sticks/2 cups of butter)

Preheat oven to 350.

Spread 3/4 cup butter on each half of the loaf.

Place on cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes or until butter is melted and starting to soak into the bread.

Crank up heat to broil and broil bread for 3-5 minutes, watching the whole time. Remove when butter has started to brown - will be deeply brown and blackened in parts. The flavor really kicks in when the butter deepens in color.

Slice and serve immediately.
