Are you looking for a simple but delicious addition to your lunch or supper meal? This mouth-watering cheesy garlic bread will delight your guests and your family members.
Ingredients to make cheesy garlic bread
One normal-sized baguette (a long, narrow loaf of French bread)
Eight tablespoons of real butter, softened (microwave 20 seconds)
+ Six garlic cloves, finely chopped
One to one-and-a-half cups of shredded cheese such as parmesan or mozzarella (or a mix of several)
Optional: Two tablespoons of fresh parsley (finely chopped)
1. Preheat oven to 200ºC.
2. Cut the bread in half horizontally and prepare a flat biscuit tray.
3. If the bread is too long for the biscuit tray, cut each end off the bread in order to fit into the tray.
4. Place both sides of the bread on the biscuit tray with the cut side facing up.
5. In a small bowl, mix softened butter and chopped garlic and spread evenly on the bread slices, using a knife, spoon or spatula.
6. With the back of the spoon or spatula, press the garlic butter combination down on the bread so that the garlic pieces are pushed into the air pockets of the bread.
7. When your oven is ready at 200ºC, put the biscuit tray in for 15 minutes and remove from the oven.
8. Change the oven setting to grill so that you can put the bread back in later.
9. Sprinkle the cheese over the bread, and then sprinkle the chopped parsley. Alternatively, mix the chopped parsley in with the cheese, and cover the bread with the mixture. Either way, make sure to sprinkle the cheese and parsley evenly over the bread slices.
10. When the oven is ready, put the bread back in to grill for one minute or until the cheese has completely melted and is golden in a few places.
11. Remove from the oven and slice the bread diagonally, making sure not to squeeze the bread while doing so.
Serve and enjoy!
