I use a recipe to turn a store-bought loaf of french bread into simply awesome crusty garlic bread. It is soft on the inside with a wonderful blend of butter and garlic. It’s a super easy garlic bread “recipe” (and much more tasty). Whenever I make pasta there MUST be garlic bread to go with it. I don’t like to buy the pre-made store stuff because it ALWAYS is a disappointment. Yuck.
Anyway, here’s a quick little tutorial on how I make it:
Crusty Garlic Bread
What you need:
1 loaf french bread
1 stick butter, softened
Garlic salt (DO NOT USE GARLIC POWDER!)
(Also aluminum foil to wrap it)
- Start out with a nice loaf of french bread from the bakery department at your local grocery store.
- Slice the french bread lengthwise (see picture below), then butter the inside of both pieces generously. After you have buttered both pieces, sprinkle garlic salt lightly onto the buttered surfaces.
- Put the loaf back together and wrap it in aluminum foil.
- Bake it in the oven at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Then all you gotta do is slice the garlic bread and serve it with lasagna or your favorite pasta dish!
Trust me, your family will LOVE this easy, crusty garlic bread recipe! And since it is so easy to make, you won’t mind doing it a bit! It is delicious eaten by itself or dipped in the excess sauce from your lasagna or other pasta dish!
See you next time!
