I am pretty proud of this garlic bread recipe. I had to play with it a little bit, but the flavors are spot on now! :D
I'm starting to think all sandwiches might need to be made using this garlic bread.
(brb going to go google garlic bread sandwiches)
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Ingredients:
- one fresh baguette, sliced in half lengthwise and then into several pieces (really needs to be soft as possible!)
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- two tablespoons chopped parsley
- three cloves garlic, minced
- 1/8 - 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
I can't stress enough that the baguette you choose needs to be a little squishy. Using day old or crusty bread results in garlic bread that is really tough to eat. (And I should know, I have done that many times.)
You'll also need a baking sheet and an oven set to 425 F.
Step 2: Melt + Spread
Melt the butter in a small bowl and stir in the rest of the ingredients. Use the back of a spoon (works the best and doesn't ruin the bread yay!) to smooth the mixture over the bread.
Step 3: Bake!
Bake the garlic bread at 425 F for 10-15 minutes.
Keep an eye on it and pull it out as soon as it starts to brown around the edges, otherwise it'll dry out too much. :D
P.S. If you don't eat it all immediately, the leftovers are great as croutons on salad the next day. Or just as a snack. I might have eaten garlic bread croutons as a snack for two days after this batch. Maybe.
