A lot of people serve bread with their meals especially at Thanksgiving. I bring it up a notch with homemade garlic bread. Oh yes, that garlic butter is crack. You can smell it down the hall enticing you to try some. If you like garlic, you'd love this garlic butter.
For 2 loaves of bread, I use 3 sticks of butter and 2 bulbs of garlic that's roughly chopped.
1 loaf of ciabatta bread
3 sticks of butter
2 bulbs of garlic, roughly chopped
1 handful of flat parsley leaves, roughly chopped
1. Place butter and garlic into a pan on medium heat. When butter is melted, lower heat to low and let cook for 60 minutes until butter is golden brown and garlic is caramelized.
2. Allow butter to cool and solidify again. Cool in refrigerator overnight if necessary. But allow butter to soften before making the bread.
3. Preheat broiler on low. Slice ciabatta loaf in half lengthwise. Generously spread butter on both sides. Toast bread under broil for about 5 minutes until bread is browned and toasted. Keep a watchful eye. Burned garlic is not tasty.
4. Remove from heat and garnish with chopped parsley. Serve immediately.
