When I heard of garlic bread, I was a bit sceptical at first. I wondered how it would taste, but as a garlic lover that I already was, I jumped on that train, I loved it, and still do. When I found out that the recipe was not rocket science, my joy was overflowing.
It makes a beautiful snack and a wonderful starter at dinner parties. It’s such an easy way to get everyone ‘oohing’ and ‘aahing’ and applauding you for your culinary skills. It’s going to be banger at Christmas dinner, and definitely something you can take to the table at a picnic.
I did my research, and I found two methods of making garlic bread. Both use garlic butter and a French stick. There’s a post on how to make and store garlic butter here.
There is usually parmesan sprinkled onto them. I have a saying ‘cheese makes everything better’ but a quick trip to the grocery store had me thinking that I would like them without. Cheese is so expensive where I live. It’s almost a luxury. In fact, it’s a luxury. Seeing as the mode of payment was not cash, but a kidney and an arm, I decided to make them without the cheese, and I enjoyed it all the same. Well, I tried the two recipes, and I have them here for you to see. I may have snuck my my preferred option in there.
1. Half a cup of garlic butter.
2. 1 medium French bread
1. oven .
2. A baking tray.
1. Slice the baguette lengthwise, and place them sliced side up on the baking sheet.
2. Spread the garlic butter evenly over the sliced baguette.
3. Place under the broiler for 10- 15 minutes, or until the edges are lightly toasted.
4. Slice it up, and serve warm.
1. Half a cup of garlic butter (Melted)
2. 1 french bread.
2. Baking tray.
1. Slice the bread lengthwise, and place them sliced side up.
2. Brush the melted garlic butter onto the bread, and drizzle the remaining butter onto the bread. There would be lumps, from the garlic butter. Don’t fret.
3. Place under the broiler at 160C and let it get lightly toasted. This should take 10- 12 minutes.
4. Slice it up nicely and serve it up warm!
It’s simply delicious. You have to give it a try.
