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!
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...
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!)
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.
