Garlic bread is so retro, so seventies, so easy to make, that we forget why everyone enjoys it. Home-made garlic bread is the first thing everyone reaches for at the table. Five ingredients, three steps, that’s all you need to bake up an unforgettable loaf that puts grocery-store versions to shame.
|EASY GARLIC BREAD|| |
- 1 loaf soft Italian or French style bread (about 12 ounces) unsliced
- 6 tablespoons (3 ounces) unsalted butter
- 2 fat cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
- ½ teaspoon fine sea salt
- Heat oven to 400 F. Slice the loaf into 1-inch-slices without cutting all the way through the bread.
- Melt the butter in a small sauce pan over medium heat.
- Add the garlic and cook stirring often until fragrant, about one or two minutes. Let cool slightly.
- Add the parsley and ½ tsp salt.
- Brush the butter mixture between the slices and wrap the loaf in foil
- Bake until warmed through, ten to fifteen minutes.
- Oven the foil and bake until lightly toasted on top, five to seven minutes more.
