I know I usually have drink recipes on Wednesdays, but this week I decided to make a special drink post on New Years Eve. Thus, today I decided to post one of my favorite sides. Garlic Bread. I love garlic bread. I like it crispy, crunchy and extremely garlicky. Basically I like it so garlicky that it scares off vampires, small animals and unfortunately women. Happens, but you have to choose, garlic or the ladies. In the eternal struggle between Garlic and Ladies, today Garlic won.
Break off a bit and eat with your favorite pasta or pizza.
Garlic Bread Revisited
- 1 Round of rosemary herb bread
- 6 cloves garlic
- 1/4 cup spreadable butter
- 8 slices mozzarella cheese
- salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
The first job is to finely minced the garlic. If have found that using a microplane works amazing for this task. Once you have all of the garlic finely minced add the spreadable butter to the bowl along with a little salt and pepper. Mix until the garlic is completely incorporated into the butter.
Next cut the round into slices. Cut about 90% of the way through the bread. Don’t cut all the way through.
Now slather the inside of the slices with the garlic butter.
Next place the cheese slices into the bread. You may have to break the slices in half to get them to fit. Having a little cheese sticking out of the top is perfectly fine.
Place the round into the oven on a cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes. Then switch the oven to broil and stick the round under the broiler for a minute or two. Just until the cheese starts to bubble and turn brown.
Break the bread at the cuts and serve.
