Garlic Bread

I almost feel daft posting this; but I think buying pre-made garlic bread is a waste. Making your own garlic butter is super easy and the results are really rewarding!


  • A nice fresh baguette/baton

Per 10 cm of bread use the following quantities:

  • 1½ tbsp of butter
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic (to taste)
  • 1 tbsp of fresh parsley (½ tsp for dried)


Peel and crush the garlic and place in a bowl. Add the margerine and vigorously mix with the garlic. Keep mashing the garlic further into the margerine with the bottom of your tablespoon and stir well until both are mixed into a thick paste. The margarine’s consistency should change slightly. Add the parsley and stir in. Let the mixture stand at least 15-20 mins.

Take the bread and cut into 10 cm lengths. Slice each piece down the centre but not all the way; leave a ½ cm so it’s still in one piece. Smear a tablespoon of the garlic butter between both sides of the bread covering the ends of the piece as well. Place on a baking tray in a pre-heated oven at 200°C for 5-7 mins or until nicely toasted and warmed through.

Tip: Freeze the excess pre-cut to size for next time, if not using it all.
