Need help with Garlic Bread!

My husband and I, 2 other couples are all having dinner together Monday night, and we are in charge of bringing garlic bread. (They're having Spaggetti for the meal)

But for us, i've just always buttered a couple slices of bread, and sprinkled them with garlc powder..... I'd like to do something fancier than that.

What kind of bread should I buy for it?

Anyone have a good recipe I can use??

You can get french baget, it works really well. I usually just throw bunch of fresh garlic and butter and salt into small food processor, mix really well, spread, bake.

You could do what Buck and I do. Roast a whole head of garlic, then squeeze out the sweet, soft cloves. Mix the cloves with some softened butter or whipped butter, a little finely chopped fresh parsley and enough salt to your taste. Spread this mixture on the toasted bread slices of your choice.

I make our own baguettes here, so I simply slice the bread about 1/2- to 3/4-inch thick and toast until golden and, while still a bit warm, spread with the garlic-butter mixture.

You could guild the lily a bit by sprinkling a little grated Parmesan cheese over.

Pretty tasty way of "kicking up" garlic bread. We like it in our house.

A French or Italian loaf, or a baguette, would work. If you can get it from a good bakery, all the better, but baking it will crisp it up

Also, check out this thread: http://www.discusscooking.com/forums...ead-43212.html

I would go with a french loaf. Dice some fresh garlic, mix it with some butter, spread, and go. :)
Have fun.


Should toss some mixed mozz/cheddar cheese on that too, in my opinion.

We usually use a French style baguette. presliced diagonally, The slices not fully cut. We then mixed pureed garlic, butter & mixed herbs and spread it through the part cut slices. Wrap in tinfoil and bake.

I used to do that if I didn't have a roll on hand, in which case I would do the same thing to a roll.
I would follow one of the other recipes posted for taking your bread to a friend's, but for yourself next time, try brushing some EVOO on the bread (I use thick sliced homemade), toast it, then simply rub it with a clove of fresh garlic. The toasty texture of the bread will act like sandpaper and shave down the clove onto the bread.
Why open a jar of powdered if you don't have to?
Geez, I can't believe I just said that
