This past week when I was heading out to the grocery store, I did what I always do and asked Spencer if he had any specific requests. Normally he tells me to just make whatever I want but this week he said he wanted garlic bread. I told him I’d pick up a box of the frozen stuff but he wasn’t letting me get away with that and asked me to make it like I usually do.
So I whipped up my favorite French bread recipe (which I promise to share soon, it’s SO easy) and tried to remember what I usually do for garlic bread. I can’t remember the last time I made it and I’m almost certain I used to just rub a whole clove of garlic over freshly toasted bread. I wanted to do something a little more fun this time and it turned out perfect.
Yes, it does call for a lot of butter. It’s definitely not something to eat everyday. Unless you’re my husband who requested it again the following day.
- 1 loaf French bread, split horizontally
- 1 stick butter, softened
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon parsley, finely chopped
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Place French bread on a heavy baking sheet. Combine butter, garlic, and parsley. Spread butter mixture evenly over both sides of French bread. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove bread and turn on broiler.
- Once broiler is heated, put bread back in and check after only a minute or 2. It will burn quickly so donâ€™t walk away from the oven. Itâ€™s done with the edges are slightly browned.
