Garlic Bread

Leave a comment

I love love love garlic bread. I don’t go out to eat enough to get it, and I don’t like the freezer section stuff all that much. Solution? I make my own! It’s really simple and oh-so-good. Remember though, your garlic bread will only be as good as the bread you put it on. Try to find a local bakery and give them some business!

Garlic Bread
serves 12

1 loaf of French or Italian bread (not a baguette)
5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon fresh oregano, minced or 1 teaspoon dried oregano
3/4 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Cut bread into 1 inch thick slices.
  3. In a small bowl, mix butter, olive oil, garlic, oregano, and salt and pepper to taste. Spread mixture onto bread slices.
  4. Arrange slices on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes or until bread is lightly browned and crispy.  Remove from oven.
  5. Turn on broiler.
  6. Top slices of bread with mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses. Broil for 2 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Serve immediately.
