Simple Garlic Bread - My Way

Whenever I make soup of any kind, I tend to make garlic bread. Usually I add the butter - garlic mixture to the sliced bread and broil in the oven for about 5-6 minutes. But for the past few years I have been making it in a different way and love the bread made this way to bits and pieces. It makes the bread soaked up with the garlic flavor, without making them too crusty. I came across this method of baking garlic bread when browsing through one of the cookbooks from the library. I don't remember the name of the book but this tip got struck in my head forever :) 



Ingredients:
1 medium french baquette (I used a multi grain bread)
8 cloves of garlic chopped finely
2 tblsp butter
3 tblsp olive oil.
1 tsp dried oregano
salt and pepper as per taste



Method.

Preheat the oven 350F

Chop the garlic finely.I used a garlic press from Ikea, such a nice kitchen accessory.

Mix  it up with butter, olive oil, oregano salt and pepper.Let it sit for 15 minutes.


Slice the bagutte in to thin slices 3/4 the way (not into separate pieces).

Fill up the slits with garlic mixture.  Brush the remaining mixture on top of the bread.


Wrap it up tightly with aluminium foil

Bake in the 325F  oven for 20 minutes.



Note :  You can also decrease the amount of butter and increase the olive oil, that works great too.
Home made garlic bread  is always the best as you can control the amount of salt as well as butter as per our need.
For more crispier slices grill it in the broiler for a minute or two.

I opt for the store bought and always found them too buttery. Will try this method soon and agree with you on the butter and garlic used.

That would be great idea to freeze after the slicing and brushing with butter i guess. I never knew this way!
