Recipie: Cheesy, garlic pull-aprt bread

Right, this bread is sooo simple yet so good. I recomend you don't eat it too often because once you start, it is hard to stop. It is the most addicting way to eat bread, and if you hate bread and butter, this is not the recipie for you.
And I promise you, this recipie is foolproof, it will work, as long as you don't do anything stupid.

You will need:

2 garlic cloves
A handful (around about 2 tbs) of chopped parsley, or rosemary (I didn't have parsley so I used rosemary)
1 1/2 cups of any good quality cheese (Mozeralla is good, as it is stretchy, cheddar gives a sharp flavour, feta is good as well, just  bit tangier)
1/3 cup melted butter  (butter is actually good for you, for those in doubt here is a link:
1/3 cup olive oil
A large loaf of round bread, one that will soak butter well, and is soft on the inside
I used wholewheat but you can choose white

(That's all!, don't add anything else, it will spoil it)

The instructions are:
Preheat oven to 180 degrees
Cut bread in a crisscross pattern, cut the bread quite deep, so it is about 2 cm away from the bottom, that way you get big chunks but it doesn't fall apart
Place bread on a large piece of tinfoil, big enough to wrap around the whole bread
Crush garlic (I normally do it with a knife), mix with olive oil and butter
Spoon mixture into gaps in the bread, make sure all the chunks are nicely soaked and infused

Wrap the bread up and pop it in the oven for 10 minutes
Meanwhile, prepare your cheese and chop your parsley
After 10 minutes, take your bread out and turn the oven up to 200 degrees
Unwrap the foil and stuff your bread with cheese (Stuff the gaps well!) and top with parsley

Now keep your bread unwarped and pop it in the oven for another 15 minutes
After 15 minutes, take it out, let it cool for a bit and then pull out a chunk of cheesy, buttery goodness!
