So this is going to sound bad on my part, but this is the first thing in a while that my guy actually asked me to make again, every night. Haha.
I don’t take offense to that, because I know it’s just because he would rather have a greasy burger and fries rather than the things I make at home. Is there such a thing as having a healthier palate? Because I think I have one (with a sweet side now and then)
So the French baguette I received from my co-op the other week had just been sitting in my fridge, staring at me every time I would open the door. I started to feel bad, so I decided to make some garlic bread. I mean how hard could it be?
Answer: Easy Peasy. Why the heck have I been buying that frozen crap that never turns out good?!?
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Step 2: Cut the baguette in half horizontally. And set aside on baking sheet.
Step 3: In a small bowl mix 1/4 cup (1/2 a stick) of softened, unsalted butter, 2 cloves of fresh minced garlic, and chopped fresh parsley (I didn’t measure but maybe about 1 tbsp). Spread mixture over both halves of the loaf. you can use more or less butter, depending on your health concerns
Step 4: Bake in oven for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and grate fresh Parmesan cheese over both halves. Broil for about 1 minute, or until cheese is melted. Really check often because it can burn very quickly! I check every twenty seconds or so, no joke.
Let cool for about 5 minutes, cut and enjoy! I stored the leftovers in my fridge for a couple days and even reheated in the microwave they tasted great!
