Homemade Garlic Bread

Homemade Garlic Bread

Homemade garlic bread is infinitely tastier than conventional shop bought garlic bread. It’s much more authentic and ridiculously simple to make.

Ciabatta isn’t essential any bread can be used – but it will make it more authentic. If you’re a savvy shopper you might be able to pick up a loaf in the reduced section of your local supermarket. I’d highly advocate real butter for this recipe, but artificial spreads can be used if you’re watching the calorie count of your food. This recipe is perfectly acceptable as part of a healthy diet. Wholemeal bread could be used to make it better.

This isn’t the healthiest of recipes. But it’s one that should be considered a treat. It’s perfect for Italian inspired dinner parties. Homemade garlic bread is incredibly easy and will add another level of indulgence to impress your company (Particularly if they do not cook!) As a suggestion this could be teamed with homemade pizza (Recipe )

Stale bread can be used within this recipe, since crustiness is not a factor. Homemade garlic bread can be a great way to use up a loaf that has been sitting around for a while.

Homemade Garlic Bread

1) Slice your ciabatta evenly. At this point turn your oven on if baking.

2) Mince your garlic, either by crushing the clove and then dicing it or use a conventional garlic crusher (Link to the one I own at the bottom of this page)

2) Add butter, crushed garlic gloves and the sliced parsley to a mixing bowl. Fold these ingredients together. Ensure that you mix thoroughly as you do not want to simply have chunks of garlic.

3) Spread slices of ciabatta with garlic and parsley infused butter 

4) Toast ciabatta under grill or bake at 220C for 5 minutes. Take care not to leave it under the grill too long if using stale bread.

5) Serve and wonder why you ever bothered with frozen garlic baguettes.
