I am sitting here in a bit of shock that we haven’t shared this recipe yet. This is one of those foods we eat so regularly I can’t believe I haven’t shared it with you. It’s also incredibly simple AND is one we are complimented on every time we make it for someone new SO because of all of those things I am sharing it with you today!
Because Paula plans meals ahead much better than I do she makes her own french bread. You can find her recipe here. I on the other hand typically send Nate running to the local store for a fresh loaf.
Step 1. Using your choice of butter and spread it all over the bread. I like to make sure I get it edge to edge.
Step 2. Sprinkle garlic salt all over the butter and follow it up with the Parmesan cheese. I tried to get a photo of how much I use, it is really going to be up to you how much you use, I like a nice coverage because I like my garlic bread to be nice and garlic-y.
Step 3. With the oven set to broil slide the bread onto the rack (set to the middle of the oven). Cooking times will vary based on the oven. I timed how long my oven took and it was right at about 3.5 minutes (broil set to high). You’re going to want to watch the bread closely so it doesn’t burn (especially along the edges), my oven cooks faster toward the back so I usually spin it around half way through.
Step 4. Pull that golden brown bread out of the oven, let it cool for a moment and then slice it up.
Now, if you love avocado I am about to change your world for the better…
Slice up a nice (not overly) ripe avocado and put a few slices on your garlic bread and enter a heavenly place!!
We love the garlic bread with anything pasta and it is also a perfect side with BBQ ribs. Go try it, tonight. I promise you won’t regret it!
