Garlic Bread


Very quick to prepare, garlic bread by the slice is very handy when a whole garlic baguette isn’t needed.


Garlic Bread by the Slice
Prepares: 2 slices
  • Preparation time: About 5 minutes
  • Cooking time: 15 minutes

  • Ingredients
  • 4 slices French bread*
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
  • 115g (4 oz) butter, softened (½ cup, or 1 stick)
  • 2 tsp fresh parsley, chopped

  1. Method
  2. Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F) (gas 6)

  3. Combine the garlic and parsley with the butter. Now spread each slice of bread on one side with the garlic butter. Arrange on a baking tray and cover with foil.

  4. Bake in the oven for 10–15 minutes, removing the foil halfway through cooking.

  5. *To store the French bread
  6. Take one loaf of French bread and remove the crusts from both ends. Slice the loaf into thick slices, about 1.25cm (½ inch). Separate the number of slices usually required for a meal by a piece of baking parchment. (This makes it easier to remove just a few slices at a time from the freezer to thaw.) Wrap the bread in foil and freeze.

  7. When needed just thaw the required number of slices and follow the recipe above.

  8. We enjoy lovely home-baked bread and if you would like to bake your own French bread, you could follow Paul’s recipe for Crusty French Bread.
