Sometimes it is fun to make an old recipe new and that is exactly what I did with this. I have been making garlic bread for years and years and years…..you get the point. I had some extra herbs I wanted to play around with, so I chopped them up and added them to our old standby with great results. Try this when you can…I don’t think you will be sorry!
Herbed Garlic Bread
This is a great recipe to use those fresh herbs from your garden
or to use up those you bought at the store!
1 loaf good quality bread (I used a rustic, whole grain)
1/4 cup butter, room temperature
1 Tbs chopped garlic
1/4 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tsp fresh oregano, chopped
1 tsp fresh thyme, chopped
1 Tbs fresh parsley, chopped
1 tsp. fresh basil, chopped
1/2 tsp fresh chives, chopped
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Cut bread in half horizontally. To the butter, add the salt, pepper and all the herbs. Mix them together with a fork or spoon. Now add the cheese and mix until the cheese is incorporated into the butter/herb mixture.
Spread the herbed butter on the bread halves. Put bread on foil lined baking sheets and bake until the butter is melted into the bread and the cheese is golden and yummy.
What did I love about this recipe? I really loved that it was so much better than serving just plain old garlic bread. The herbs gave it a fresh taste…perfect!
What didn’t I love about this recipe? No leftovers, boohoo! 😦
