Garlic Bread

There’s a reason why bread and butter is a staple food combination. I remember when I was younger, we would get fresh baked loaves of bread from the bakery, lather them with butter, and eat it all day long. Heck, I’m not a kid anymore and I think I still did that just the other week! Add fresh garlic and parsley for the perfect side to any Italian inspired dish.


6-8 Slices of Fresh Baked Bread
1-2 Tbsp Butter
1-2 Garlic Cloves (diced or minced)
2-3 Sprigs of Flat Leaf Parsley (chopped)

Dice the garlic and the leaves of the parsley, discard the stems. In a small glass or microwave safe bowl, add the diced garlic, parsley, and butter. Microwave for about 30 secs. This really helps infuse the garlic oil into the butter. Then, use a spoon or brush to spread the melted garlic butter mixture on one side of each bread slice. Some of the different bread selections I use are French Country, Batard, Boule, Ciabatta (though the holes in ciabatta bread are quite big sometimes), Pagnotta, and Italian. Toast the bread in a toaster oven on low. This goes great with some simple lasagna or try my pancetta and pasta recipe (a family favorite). Enjoy!
