One of my friends asked for a garlic bread recipe. It's a few more steps than you might think are necessary to make bread, but so good.
4-5 cloves garlic, finely diced or grated
1 stick butter, softened
salt and pepper
1 baguette, sliced in half horizontally
1 1/2 cups cheese, shredded (mozzarella or Italian blend)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a small pan over medium low heat, melt 1 Tablespoon butter and cook the garlic until golden, about 5-10 minutes.
Mix together garlic mixture, remaining butter, salt and pepper in a bowl and spread thickly on both cut sides of the bread. Sandwich bread back together and wrap in foil. Bake for 15 minutes.
Unwrap bread and sprinkle with cheese. Broil until cheese has melted, 1 to 2 minutes. Keep an eye on it, if you walk away it will totally catch fire and you will be sad.
