Ultimate Garlic Bread Recipe
I don’t know a single person who doesn’t love Garlic Bread. It's the most tasty, quick and easy to make side dish that I can think of, and doesn't require too many ingredients either, so you can't really go wrong -> just bread + garlic + butter = a winning combo! 

It is such a popular side dish to serve with so many different dishes... You name it, Garlic Bread goes with it.
The Ultimate Garlic Bread Recipe
For my Ultimate Garlic Bread recipe, you will need;
- 2 ready to bake Baguettes, cut in half
- 4 Garlic Cloves, peeled and chopped
- 3 tbsp of Butter
- 1 tsp of Parsley
- Olive Oil
- Salt and Pepper
- Chilli Flakes (optional)
- Grated Cheese, Cheddar and Mozzarella (optional)
Garlic Butter
 To begin making this tasty treat, you will need to firstly grab a microwave-safe bowl or cup. Then combine all of the ingredients together; the Butter, chopped Garlic, Salt, Pepper and Parsley, followed by a splash of Olive Oil.

 Microwave the mixture on a low power setting, for 30-40 seconds, until the butter has completely melted. Then remove from microwave and give the mixture a good stir, making sure everything is combined. 

With a fork, press some holes evenly across the baguettes; this allows your buttery mixture to absorb and fully soak into the bread better, giving a much better flavour to your dish! Spoon the Garlic Butter mixture evenly over the baguettes until covered. Now they are ready to bake in the oven!

If you are using ready to bake Baguettes, these will take 8-12 minutes to cook in a preheated oven, around 200° is perfect. Once the baguettes are ready, I like to finish them off by placing under the grill for a couple of minutes, this allows the mixture to soak deeper into the bread and the fresh Garlic to super crunchy! Delicious!

I prefer to make my own homemade Garlic Bread, as I find store-bought versions sometimes lack in flavour, or can be completely dry as there is not much butter mixture added. I like mine to be super buttery and packed full of garlic, for that extra punch!

As an added extra, you can finish off my Ultimate Garlic Bread Recipe by adding some grated Cheese and a pinch of Chilli Flakes (for a little spicy kick) before you place under the grill. I like to use a grated Cheddar and Mozzarella Cheese, as for me this is the best combination of cheeses to use, as they melt perfectly and go super crisp under the grill.

Do you make your own Garlic Bread at home? What is your favourite recipe to use?
