Really easy to make. Just get some baguettes from your local deli….the rest of the ingredients are probably in your fridge and pantry already! Enjoy with pasta (see my BACON AND MUSHROOM CARBONARA SAUCE WITH RAVIOLI). If all fails, the bread is readily available from the refrigerated section of your supermarket’s deli (not as nice though and there is no sense of satisfaction, is there???).

1 Baguette from your baker or supermarket
175g butter
8 cloves garlic – finely minced or crushed (depending on how you like you garlic’s texture on the bread)
3 tbsp finely chopped parsley

Preheat the oven to 230°C.

Melt the butter in the microwave (do it in 10 sec burst), add in the garlic and chopped parsley.

Cut the baguette in half horizontally and brush the melted garlic butter generously over the CUT sides.

Put on a baking tray and place in the hot oven for 4 to 5 mins, CUT SIDES UP or until toasted and golden brown.

TIP: You can make extra bread and freeze it for future use. Brush the bread with the garlic butter and freeze. I recommend you place a strip of plastic in the middle before freezing. Do not thaw out, put it straight into the oven and cook heat until golden.
