Garlic-Herb Bread - Lori's Cookbook

3개월 전

This is my entry for this week's @foodfightfriday.

Garlic bread is such a comfort food! It goes with so many other dishes as well. Yet, I found it difficult to work out how much garlic I needed. Finally, I started looking at some recipes until I found something I liked. The process is so simple it's worth trying for anyone who likes garlic bread!

Garlic-Herb Butter

First, you need to mix up the butter.

Start with a stick of softened butter. That is 1/2 cup or around 125g if you use metric.

Add to the butter:

  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons garlic granules
  • 1/2 Tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 Tablespoon dried oregano
    (If using fresh, reduce Tablespoons to Teaspoons.)


Stir until the herbs are well-incorporated into the butter.


You can chill the garlic-herb butter for later use or use it immediately for garlic-herb bread.
You might also like it more garlicky - double (or more) the garlic if this is you...

Garlic-Herb Bread

Preheat the oven to 400F.

Slice the bread. Ideally, you want French or Italian bread - a day old is ideal. I'm using my No-Knead Bread which I formed into French-style loaves.


Spread the slices with garlic-herb butter. I kept slicing until I used up the butter, but then, I have a family to feed.


Bake the bread slices on the top shelf of the oven for 10-12 minutes. (Watch closely as they are very good at burning!)


Serve with Spaghetti and Meatballs , any Italian-inspired dish or with steak as we did. (This was baked lamb - yum!)


Recipe Cards

As usual, here are your recipe cards. Feel free to print these out to add to your own cookbook.



(Hmmm, I think this is on the menu tonight!)

Two of my kitchen witches. One hung in my grandmother's kitchen as long as I can remember, so I have mine - adding a certain magickal spice to my cooking, presumably...
My grandmother's now lives in my mother's kitchen.

Wow! Another yummy treat! You cook so well. I hope one day I'll get the chance to taste them. LOL! ^_^ Enjoy your weekend! Take care! :))


Thanks! I hope so too.

Every time I see the kitchen witch on the right I see the bell hanging... right..... there, where, uhm.. it’s hanging and the witch is holding the sword like that I Uh.. well, I uhm, think of fencing—yeah, that’s it! “Fencing.”

I don’t know Lori, are you sure there’s enough butter? 😉

Great entry, chef. It’s always a pleasure to see you.


Trust a guy to take an innocent little witch and see something... else... instead! ;-)
And one can never have too much butter...
Good to see you too! Thanks for stopping by.


What, fencing? It’s some sword fighting, nothing to do with roosters, sport thing—I think it’s in the Olympics.

Guy? Yeah, probably. Me, however? I’ll definitely say something, everyone else around here pretends to be
gun shy and plays the politically correct card. Sissy’s.


Yes, fencing is in the Olympics. Nothing to do with that bell though...
Nothing wrong with you being a guy though... even someone who doesn't worry about being politically correct.

Thanks for share your recipe

Thanks for reading!

I must admit, that we normally buy ready made garlic bread, but a lot of times, they also don't get the amount of garlic butter right, perhaps I should give the old-school way a try again.


i can't buy any of those due to allergy issues, so I had to learn to do it myself. I, too, was struggling with the amount of garlic and butter... so, I started looking around. Finally got something I like.

Toasted to perfection garlic bread with a big scoop of spaghetti on it... Drooooool You are in deed right, it is tough to get the amount of garlic just right to where it isn't too over powering. Great recipe I will be referring to this tomorrow since we are making spaghetti


Awesome! I have also sometimes added Parmesan to the butter. Garlic powder may give a better result than garlic granules - something I still need to test. Let me know how you get on.

This is a lovely entry if there ever was one, mouth watering really.


Thanks! And I went ahead and made some tonight as well. Yum!


What! What!
🤜 🤛
Have you watched SteemFest at all?


Where? When? How?


This is one of them, I thought there would be a live feed today but nothing so far. If you navigate to videos you can find more, this is a live I watched yesterday.


Thanks. I will check that out in the morning.


let me know your thoughts.


My pleasure!
