This is a very easy recipe of how to make a delicious restaurant like garlic bread. I have learnt this from my mother and have added some ingredients to this age old family recipe. Garlic bread is delicious on its own or as a side dish with a salad, or some grilled meat/chicken or vegetable dish. Frankly i can just eat this on its own because it is so delicious.
To peel garlic easily without getting your hands smelly use the Garlic Pro which is available in my online store!
INGREDIENTS FOR THE GARLIC BUTTER:
6 cloves of garlic peeled and minced, i used the garlic pro to peel and mince it
1/2 cup of room temperature butter with salt
1 teaspoon of finely minced fresh parsley
a good pinch of black pepper
Bread of your choice, you can use french loaf, baguette, buns, or even sliced bread or hamburger buns, halved
Mix the minced garlic with the softened butter, the black pepper and the minced parsely. Mix it very well till its all well blended. Make cuts in the french loaf or baguette without going through all the way. Gently spread some of this garlic butter between each cut . If using sliced bread or hamburger buns apply the galic butter on it. Toast the bread in a medium hot oven 200 degrees till the bread is toasted. Serve hot.
NITU DIDI TIP:
I never use refrigerated minced garlic for this as it has a different aroma. I always mince the garlic fresh, You can make a large amount of garlic butter and keep it in the fridge. When you want to use it just thaw and use. This garlic butter is excellent to top grilled fish or grilled vegetables. You can also add grated cheese to this , but i find it makes it too heavy on the calories and prefer to make it this way. You can also use unsalted butter and add some salt.
