Who doesn't love Garlic breads. If there is any accompaniment that goes well for majority of European cuisines, it has to be the mighty Garlic Bread. Aren't there times we used to spent a fortune for garlic breads when we go to restaurants and eat it by proportioning it between all those present on the table. Well gone are those days. Here you will find how to make different varieties of Garlic bread in a quick, easy and consistent manner.

Serves: 3-4
Preparation time: 2 minutes
Oven time: 20 minutes 

Ingredients:
  • 1 baguette of plain French Bread
    • Available at all bakeries - Prefer the one at Star Bazaar/Hot Breads/French Loaf
  • 100 gms of butter (No harm in putting more)
  • 3 cloves of Garlic 
    • Can also use 1 tsp of Garlic paste but make sure u strain it.
  • Oregano/Parsley seasoning
    • Can also use Garlic Bread Seasoning from Keya - Available at Amma Nanna, Adyar

(French Baguette)
Method:
  1. Pre-heat your oven to 180 C
  2. Place the butter in a microwave oven and heat it for 15 seconds on High. This will melt the butter sufficient enough to mix our ingredients yet preventing it from melting into liquid state.
  3. Crush the cloves of Garlic using pestle and mortar (in case you do not have one, just place the gloves on a flat surface and crush them using the side of a broad knife).
  4. Mix the garlic paste, butter and seasoning (according to taste) in a bowl.
  5. Make diagonal slices on the baguette carefully by ensuring you do not cut it all the way down.
  6. Spread the mixture between the diagonal pockets as shown.
  7. Smoother the remaining butter on top of the baguette and around its sides.
  8. Wrap the baguette in alumnium foil and place it in the pre-heated oven in the middle tray.
  9. After 10 mins, turnover the baguette and leave it for a further 7-10 mins.
  10. Remove it from the oven and slice the cuts all the way down and serve it.

Variations
  • You can also mix in shredded cheese slices to give it a cheesy flavoring.
  • After removing from the oven, you can even place some cheese and chicken cubes on top of each slice and place it back on the oven for a few minutes to have a Cheese Chicken Garlic Bread.
