Garlic Bread

Garlic Bread is a simple but delicious side dish that is  perfect for pasta, soups or just with coffee. I love to make my own garlic bread with different kinds of bread  like white bread, wheat bread, french bread or even biscuit. Fresh or a day old bread can make a meal extra ordinary. I used wheat bolillo bread for this particular recipe just because wheat bread is my favorite bread.

A bolillo is a type of bread traditionally made in Mexico, where it originates, and Central America. In Central America, especially in El Salvador, it is known as pan frances or French bread. It is a variation of the baguette, and is often baked in an horno de piedra.(wiki)

Whole-wheat bread is a type of bread made using flour that is partly or entirely made from whole or almost-whole wheat grains.(wiki)

  1. 1/2 cup melted butter
  2. 1 tsp minced garlic
  3. wheat bolillo or french bread
  4. 1/4 grated parmesan cheese (optional)
  5. 1/2 tsp sugar
  6. 1 tsp parsley flakes or 2 tsp of chopped fresh parsley
  1. Sliced bread or cut in anyway you want.
  2. Soften  butter in the microwave for 15 seconds.
  3. Add in the remaining ingredients, mix well.
  4. Spread generous amount of garlic butter on bread
  5. Place on a baking pan and put in the preheated oven, 350 degrees F for 15-20 minutes just enough for the butter to melt.
  6. Remove from oven. Serve immediately

  6. i'm not much of a bread eater, but i can handle garlic bread and breadsticks - maybe bec they are crunchy and not the usual soft bread.
