Place rack in Cuisinart® Exact Heat™ Convection Toaster Oven Broiler in position B and preheat oven to 450ºF on Bake setting. In a Cuisinart® Food Processor fitted with the metal blade, process garlic until finely chopped, about 15 seconds. Scrape bowl and add cheese; process until finely chopped, about 30 seconds. Add butter, oil, salt and pepper; process until smooth, about 15 seconds. Scrape bowl as necessary. Cut bread into two 8-inch pieces, cut each piece in half lengthwise and spread each cut side with garlic mixture. Place two pieces of prepared bread directly on oven rack, cut side up, and bake until toasted, about 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from toaster oven with a spatula and repeat with remaining two pieces of bread. Slice into 2-inch pieces and serve warm.
