Recently, I was flipping through the pages of a cooking magazine, and found a recipe for garlic bread you bake in the oven as a loaf. Jeff and I tend to make cheesy garlic bread in the toaster oven, but when we saw this we knew we needed to try this simple, delicious garlic bread.
So take some garlic…we used four cloves, but it definitely could have used more. I must say, the following night I made it again with Becca (I know, a little outrageous, but would you have it another way?) and I used double the garlic…so use about eight cloves, is what I’m suggesting.
Then, add your kosher salt directly to your garlic, and smoosh them together!
Then melt some butter, and add some olive oil, too, because it’ll make the butter go farther. Exact measurements aren’t that important, because loaves of bread are seldom the same size!
You’ll need fresh parsley too, because it just makes your bread that much more delicious. Trust me, here.
Then, cut the bread into slices, but don’t cut all the way through.
Perfect. Now, here comes the good part…
Coat each piece, on both sides, in the mixture of garlic/parsley/butter/oil.
Then put the loaf back as you found it. No one will know, no one will even suspect it’s full of delectable buttery garlic!
Wrap it up and put it in the oven for 15 minutes at about 375. Then, unwrap it and leave it in for 5 more minutes.
Then take it out, and it’s all crispy on the outside, but moist on the inside, and basically the best thing ever. We had it with ravioli and asparagus, but it was easily the star of the show.
