Food #ICook | Garlic Bread
I love garlic bread so much, I make my own :D
Plus, I'm pretty annoyed at how much a 3-piece basket of GB costs at restaurants. With 1 or 2 ringgit extra, you could make a whooping 20 pieces of GBs at home.
With this dish being Italian and all, it's ironic to think back that my first experience eating GB was in my late dad's kampung (home village) in Batu Kikir, Negeri Sembilan and not in some fancy/fast food restaurant hehee .. made by my aunt. Well, here's my version;
A stick of baguette or french loaf as some call it.
Half block of room-temperature butter, any kind
3 large cloves of garlic
Black pepper and dried herbs (any kind) to taste.
1. You could either finely chop your garlic or grate/crush them depending on your taste. If you chop them up, chances are you'd find some chunks on your bread. That's all.
2. Add your chopped/grated/crushed garlic, black pepper and herbs into the butter. Give a good mix.
3. Slice the baguette on a bias.
4. Spread your garlic-herb butter compound onto the baguette slices.
5. Bake in a 180-200C oven or simply toast on a frying pan or grill until brown.
Voila! Your crispy GBs are served :D . I told you it's dead simple. I'm sorry I didn't take photos during the cooking process though but I'm sure you can very well imagine it =D
You could easily get 15-20 slices here from a stick of baguette depending on how thin/thick you slice 'em up. That's easily 20 over ringgit in a restaurant.
I love having my GBs with my pasta dish or with cooked tomatoes like a bruschetta.
