Garlic Bread with Basil

This is one of my all time favourite accompaniments

Serves 2
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cooking Time 15 minutes
Ingredients
  • 2oz/60g salted butter
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 10 fresh basil leaves (finely chopped)
  • 1 baguette or 1 ciabatta
Method
  • Pre-heat the oven to 400F/200C/gas mark 6
  • Soften the butter
  • Add the garlic to the butter and blitz with a hand blender( I found that by doing it this way it enhanced the flavour of the garlic)
  • Using a fork, stir in the chopped basil
  • Carefully slice across the bread (not all the way through) at 1inch/25mm spacing
  • Place the bread on a sheet of aluminium foil, using a knife,spread the garlic butter between the slices then close the aluminium foil to form a parcel
  • Place in the oven for 10 minutes, open the parcel for 5 minutes to make the bread nice and brown on top

That looks great. I eat bread with almost all my dinners. I will have to give this a try.
