I know garlic butter and garlic bread are fairly simple recipes, but I know far too many people who purchase the expensive store bought loaves, and it really is SO easy to make at home. Other than the french bread, you likely already have all of the ingredients at home already! We had this bread the other night when we had Uncle Frank over for our first BBQ of the season - it went fantastic with our starter cesaer salad, and not a single piece remained at the end of the meal.
- 1 loaf of french bread (or your favourite loaf of choice)
Place oven on broil.
Slice french bread at an angle for maximum garlic butter coverage. I usually use a brush to coat the bread, but use whatever your comfortable with. Place on a baking sheet in pre-heated oven. Watch very closely as it will be done very quickly - as soon as it turns golden brown around the edges.
We love this recipe for French Onion Soup (replacing the garlic butter with cheese of course).
