   Recipe by: TASTE OF HOME - OCT/NOV 95 In a small bowl,
   combine boiling water and oats; cool to 110-115
   degrees. In a mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm
   water. Add sugar, butter, salt, egg, oat mixture and 2
   cups of flour; beat until smooth. Add enough remaining
   flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured board;
   knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 min. Place
   in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover
   and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30
   min. Punch dough down and press evenly into a greased
   13x9x2 baking pan. With a very sharp knife, cut
   diagonal lines 1-1/2 apart completely through dough.
   Repeat in opposite direction, creating a diamond
   pattern. Cover and let rise in a warm place until
   doubled, about 1 hour. Redefine pattern with knife
   tip. Brush with 2 Tablespoon melted butter. Bake at
   375 degrees for 15 min. Meanwhile, combine Parmesan
   cheese, basil, oregano and garlic powder. Brush bread
   with remaining butter, sprinkle with cheese mixture.
   Bake for 5 min. Loosely cover with foil and bake 5
   minutes longer. Serve warm.
