There must be a thousand ways to make garlic bread- but this is one of the best! Particularly if you have a couple of extra homemade loaves left knocking about. The quantity of garlic butter will be a little too much for the recipe, but always handy to have some knocking about in the fridge.
For the garlic butter
- 290g Unsalted Butter, softened
- 8 Cloves Garlic, finely chopped
- 1 Tsp Lemon Juice
- 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
- 2 Tbsp Chopped Parsley
For the garlic bread
- 1 loaf bread
- 2 Sprigs Rosemary
- 2 Sprigs Thyme
Start by getting your wood fired oven up to it’s optimum temperature, then allow some time to cool to around 200°c.
Whilst you are waiting for your oven to cool, you can begin making the garlic butter. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, season, then roll as tight as you can in cling film. Place in the fridge to firm up.
Next grab your chosen loaf, and slice down as though you are going to slice the bread but just stopping before you cut the bread all the way.
Add a couple of slices of garlic butter to each gap you have made, making sure the butter is pressed right in. Add the rosemary and thyme sprigs around the loaf- no rules here, just wherever you fancy!
Tightly foil the loaf, and place in the oven for 25 minutes.
To make it cheesy garlic bread, add grated cheese of your choice in each gap, and cook for an extra 8 minutes with the foil off. Delicious.
