Preheat a grill. Line a baking tray with foil.
Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a frying pan over low heat. Add garlic; cook and stir for a few minutes until fragrant.
In a medium bowl, stir together the cream cheese, garlic, oregano, basil, parsley, salt and pepper. Mix in about half of the remaining olive oil until smooth. Spread 1 tablespoon of this mixture onto each slice of bread and place them on the foil-lined baking tray. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over each slice, then drizzle with remaining olive oil.
Grill for 3 to 5 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and golden brown. Watch VERY carefully, it will brown fast.
