Garlic Bread

First of all, sorry that once again I haven’t been posting very often. I have made myself a schedule though so from now on I’ll post at least one new recipe per week. Anyway, garlic bread! It’s extremely popular all over the place, and making it properly is extremely simple. This whole thing shouldn’t take you more than 10 minutes, not counting the time the bread’s in the oven. Hope you enjoy, and let me know what you think!

Ingredients (makes 6 pieces)

  • ½ baguette
  • 3 cloves of garlic (the bigger they are, the easier it’ll be)
  • olive oil
  • salt

Preparation (10 minutes + 10 minutes cooking time)

Slice the baguette diagonally so as to make the slices as big as possible. Put them all on a baking tray and toast in an oven for about 10 minutes, or until golden brown (traditionally you would grill them, but it takes more time and the result isn’t too different – plus, I don’t have a grill!). While they’re in the oven peel the cloves of garlic, but don’t cut them into smaller pieces. Once the slices of bread are ready, put them on a plate. Take the garlic and rub it all around one side of the bread, you should see the garlic melt and the bread should seem oily. Drizzle with olive oil and then add a sprinkling of salt. Don’t let these cool, enjoy them right away!
