The other day, I was at Safeway, strolling down the aisles, when I saw those pre-made garlic breads in the bakery section. You know those ones lathered in cheap margarine and garlic that would make your breath smell for days.
I used to love those things. They used to be my dirty little secret. But recently, I have lost my taste for them. I can’t stand them now. If I were offered one for free, I would smile and say “no thanks”.
So as I was eying this hunk of bread, an employee walks by and tells me “oh wow, you have got to try our garlic bread, it is just fantastic. I could eat a whole thing in one sitting.”
The whole time this guy was talking to me, my upper lip was lifting up in revulsion. I had no control over it, it just kept moving up! I’m hoping he didn’t notice, but since I was so rude, I decided to make some garlic bread of my own. And I liked every bit of it.
What you’ll need:
-1 loaf french bread, cut horizontaly
-1/3 cup butter, softened
-5 cloves garlic, minced
-3/4 cup parmesan cheese
-3/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
-2 tablespoons italian seasoning
1. Preheat the oven to 400˚F.
2. In a small bowl, combine the butter and garlic. Spread evenly on bread.
3. Sprinkle the top of the bread with both cheeses and the italian seasoning.
4. Broil for 5 minutes, or until the cheese has completely melted.
