Garlic bread – Simple, Easy and YUM
Garlic bread is derived from the Italian bruschetta, a thickly sliced bread-based dish rubbed with olive oil and garlic gloves, which was originally considered peasant food, and most likely a tradition passed down from the Ancient Romans.FUN FACT
Making garlic bread at home is easy, fun and YUM. If you have an oven and manage to get your hands on a nice loaf of bread, you’re all set! This garlic bread recipe is simple, even for a first-time oven user. Give it a shot and let me know what you think.
Quantity: 1 Loaf = 11 pieces medium thickness
Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 15 mins (5 preheat +10 cook)
A large loaf of French bread (You can use any kind of bread but if you get this its best)
1 bunch parsley
4 cloves of garlic
2.5 Tbsp Butter
Salt if you are using unsalted butter
Parmesan cheese (Optional. I’ve just thrown on Amul cheese slice on mine just to try it out and it was pretty darn good)
- Add the butter to a bowl and either allow it to melt or melt it in the microwave until it is in its liquid form.
- Chop up the Parsley leaves alone after removing the big stems.
- Crush and grind the 4 loaves of garlic.
- Mix the butter, parsley and garlic together.
- Slicing the bread – Its always good to have a slanted slice since it gives you more of a surface area per piece to apply the garlic butter mix. If you slice them flat, you would get more pieces but each piece would only be as big as the diameter of the loaf.
- After slicing the bread into the desired shape, generously apply the garlic butter mixture onto each slice.
- Add the grated parmesan cheese as a topping on the garlic bread. This will melt over each slice once we pop them in the oven. So here, less is more in some cases, unless you want the cheese to drip over onto the pan.
- Preheat the oven at 207°c for 5 minutes. Rub a generous amount of butter on the baking sheet to avoid the bread sticking to the sheet.
- Once the oven is hot place the sheet with our garlic bread slices into the oven for 10 minutes. In 10 minutes you will see the edge of each piece a dark brown and the bread centre a light brown. Take it out and it is ready to have.
