Super simple garlic bread recipe
Forget buying bags of frozen or only eating garlic bread when you're out for a meal - YOU will be able to make the best garlic bread you have ever eaten!
Garlic bread is an essential with most pasta dishes, it's great as part of a buffet. it smells wonderful whilst it's cooking.
The mixture of crispy crust and melted garlic butter into the fluffy inside of the bread - gorgeous!
First of all get a baguette - I prefer this to the long french stick as it is easier to manage.
You can make two or three if you want a lot of garlic bread.
Slice the bread with a bread knife.
Do not cut all the way through - leave the bottom intact otherwise the garlic butter will seep out and you'll be left with dry garlic bread.
This loaf measures 10 inches and I made 8 slices.
Move the sliced loaf onto a piece of tinfoil.
Don't be tempted to cut the loaf on the tinfoil to save crumbs as you run the risk of cutting through - the butter will run out and your garlic bread will be dry. Don’t ask me how I know ;-)
You will need a quantity of garlic butter - click for the recipe.
It depends how much you like, but for this size loaf, a couple of ounces or half a cup would be enough.
If you make too much, you can store it in the fridge or freeze for 6 monthsl
Spread the garlic butter carefully in between each slice, making sure that you coat each bit.
I like to butter both sides, but then I love garlic bread!
Push the bread back into shape with your hands.Wrap tightly in tinfoil.Put in a pre-heated oven Gas Mark 6, 400F or 200c for 10 minutes.
If you want your crust crispy, then after 10 minutes, remove the bread and pull back the tinfoil.Bake a further 5 minutes until the garlic bread is brown and crispy.
And there you have your finished garlic bread.
Lovely, golden, garlicky, crispy on the outside and moist in the middle.
