Ingredients

1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter

4 anchovy fillets, drained, chopped

1 to 2 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1/2 teaspoon minced lemon zest

1/4 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper flakes

12 (2 by 1/3-inch thick) slices rustic crusty white bread

1 cup grated Provolone

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
