Garlic Bread

Garlic Bread

Garlic bread is one of those comfort foods that just makes me happy. It's always a crowd pleaser and is such a simple way to upgrade a baguette (or any bread really). The secret to my garlic bread is slowly cooking the garlic and parsley in the butter before adding it to the baguette, this mellows the garlic flavor slightly and flavors the butter. You can make this garlic butter and store it in the refrigerator for up to a week and you can use it for a simple pasta or a base in other sauces in addition to making garlic bread!

4 Servings

Your Time: 15 minutes

1 baguette

6 tablespoons unsalted butter

3 tablespoons minced garlic (about 6 cloves)

5 sprigs Italian parsley, roughly chopped (about ¼ cup chopped)

2 teaspoons Kosher salt

1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Slice the baguette in half lengthwise. Set aside.

Melt the butter in a small sauté pan over medium-low heat. Add in the garlic, chopped parsley and salt. Simmer the garlic butter for about 5 minutes or until the garlic softens and loses its harsher raw flavor. The garlic and parsley should not turn brown, if it does turn down your heat. Remove the garlic butter from the heat and carefully spoon over both sides of the baguette. Sprinkle the parmesan cheese over the garlic butter and sandwich the two pieces of baguette back together. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 6-8 minutes or until the baguette is toasted, the garlic butter has baked into the bread and the cheese has melted. Remove from the oven, cut into slices and serve immediately.
