It is typically made using a baguette which is partially sliced downwards, allowing the condiments to soak into the loaf while keeping it in one piece. The bread is then stuffed through the cuts with oil and minced garlic before baking.
Some variants are topped with a variety of cheeses, often mozzarella, cheddar, or feta. Some restaurants use clarified butter in place of olive oil.
