Garlic Bread

Garlic Bread
Who doesn't love Garlic Bread?  The warm delicious taste of buttery garlic spread on a French or Italian loaf.   At our house, pasta would not be pasta without Garlic Bread.  The meal would seem naked. You can get your Garlic Bread already prepared or make it yourself.  It is so easy to make and if you are pressed for time you can make it ahead of time.

Simply get a stick of butter and mix in some minced garlic, dried parsley, and grated Parmesan cheese.  Slice your loaf of bread and spread the garlic butter on the slices.  Wrap in foil and pop it in the oven for about 15 minutes.  That is all there is to it.

The result is a great tasting bread that is sure to please your family:)

Garlic Bread
Smashing Garlic

1 loaf of Italian or French bread
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter softened
2 large cloves of garlic, smashed and minced
2 teaspoons dried parsley
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Mix together the butter, garlic, parsley and Parmesan cheese in small bowl.  You will have a  buttery spread.

3. Slice the loaf into 1-inch thick slices, BUT DO NOT SLICE ALL THE WAY THROUGH.  STOP AT THE BOTTOM CRUST.

4. Spread about two teaspoons of the spread between each slice.   Wrap the bread in foil and heat for 15 minutes.  Remove and serve.

Makes 1 loaf
