Soft (and Addictive!) Garlic Bread

We love garlic bread in our house, especially as an accompaniment to spaghetti and meatballs. What I don’t like, however, is super crunchy bread that takes on the consistency of toast. I’m sure some people love toasty garlic bread, but it’s just not for me.

Soft Garlic Bread

The Ingredients:

  • A fresh loaf of French bread (16 oz). Or, if you’re a huge sourdough fan, grab a loaf of sourdough.
  • 1/2 cup (yes, one stick — don’t freak out) of unsalted butter, softened.
  • 2 large cloves of garlic, smashed and minced.
  • 1 heaping teaspoon of freshly chopped parsley.

The Instructions:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Mix the butter, garlic and parsley together in a small bowl.
  • With a good bread knife, make 1 inch thick slices into the bread, down to the crust, without going completely through.
  • Put a teaspoon or two of the butter mixture between each slice.
  • Wrap the bread in aluminum foil and heat for 15 minutes in the oven.

Try not to eat the whole loaf before your family comes down for dinner.
