Notes

Alternatively you can add salt to a heavy bottom pan, place a small metal bowl in it and place your baking tray over that bowl. In the pan set up, you need to bake the bread a little longer, that is 35 minutes on low flame.
Cut in slices just before serving. Your restaurant style cheese garlic bread at home is ready!
