Herbed Garlic Bread

We love garlic bread and while we've definitely been known to grab a bag of the frozen stuff when we're short on time, it's the homemade kind that we love so much.

All you need is a loaf of french bread, a stick of butter, a couple cloves of garlic and some fresh parsley.
Let the butter soften or just pop it in the microwave a bit. Crush the garlic and mix it into the butter.Chop some fresh parsley, about a tablespoon or two, and combine with the garlic butter.
Slice the bread into 1 inch slices.
Take care not to slice all the way through so that the loaf stays together.

Smear the butter mixture on each side of every slice, about 1/2 teaspoon on each side.

Wrap the loaf in foil and bake at 400 for 10-15 minutes. If you have something else in the oven at the time, like a lasagna, just bake at that temperature and adjust the time. {350 degrees for 20 minutes works.}

Sorry I don't have any pictures of it fresh out of the oven. We took it to a friend's for dinner and all devoured it. Mmmm....garlicky, buttery goodness. Try it!

Yummy! That is exactly how I do mine, except for I roast the garlic first. I slice off the top of a head of garlic, drizzle a little oil and wrap it in foil. Pop it in a 400 degree oven for approx. 45-50 minutes until it's all caramelized and scrumptious. Then I mix that into the butter and carry on like you do. It's gorgeous. Hope you guys are doing well. Maybe one day we can all get together and let the kids play together, that could be fun.

Great tip, Notetaker! I tend to forget about the bread until the last minute and then just rush to get it done - and it isn't as yummy as this looks!
