This is another one of those recipes that'll have you wondering why you've ever bothered buying it (apart from the fact that we're all stupidly busy, obviously). If you can get your hands on a baguette, you can make a garlic bread that's really fresh and satisfying. Our kids enjoy 'helping' by slicing the bread - just watch those fingers...
- Three or four tablespoons of softened butter (salted butter tastes best!)
- A clove or two of garlic, depending on how garlicky you like it and how big your baguette is
1. Pre-heat the oven to 190c/gas 5.
2. Slice the baguette diagonally at 1.5/2 inch intervals (but don't cut right through - the baguette should be intact).
3. Put the crushed garlic and softened butter into a small bowl and mix well, and add a pinch of salt. You can add some fresh herbs like parsley if you like.
4. Spread one side of each slice of the baguette with the garlic butter.
5. Wrap the baguette in foil and bake for around 20 minutes.
