Herbed Garlic Bread


Sometimes we are looking for a quick and easy recipe. Herbed Garlic Bread from the Food Network Magazine promised to be just that. For once we didn’t need to make the bread! Little Chef D and H went shopping with me today to get a loaf of French Bread. After school Little Chef C melted the butter in a saucepan with olive oil and salt.

After a few minutes the chopped parsley was added.

The recipe says to pour some of the butter mixture in between each slice. We tried that with a couple slices but decided we wanted the entire slice buttered. We quickly decided to change to a brush. This worked so much better. A simple task a Little Chef could do with little or no help.

The bread came out smelling great. It tasted even better. We really enjoyed this recipe. This was easy enough to prepare. We will try this one again!

1 loaf Italian bread
4 Tablespoons butter, melted
1 Tablespoon olive oil
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
2 Tablespoons chopped parsley

Slice a loaf of Italian bread, stopping short of the bottom so the loaf stays intact. Melt 4 Tablespoons butter with 1 Tablespoon olive oil; add 2 to 3 minced garlic cloves and 1/2 teaspoon salt and cook, stirring, 2 minutes. Stir in 2 Tablespoons chopped parsley. Spread the garlic mixture between the bread slices; wrap in foil and bake at 375 degrees F, 15 minutes. Unwrap and bake until crisp, 5 more minutes.


I am a mom to Five Little Chefs who love to cook and create anything with their hands. Watching over 10 additional hands keeps me busy but is so much fun! We laugh and cry everyday, but then want to do it again the next day. That is how we know we are enjoying life!
