Best Garlic Bread EVER!

The Best Garlic Bread Ever
This is a simple recipe for the best garlic bread you will ever put between your lips.  It is easy to make and will keep away the vampires!  You will need a large baguette; I prefer to get a kind of chewy one, not one that is soft and puffy.

In a sauce pan mix together the following:
  • ½ pound of butter (I use clarified butter that I make ahead)
  • 20 garlic cloves that have been finely minced
  • A tablespoon of dried parsley (fresh is fine too, but you should double it if using fresh)
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons of freshly ground coarse black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1-2 tablespoons Lawry’s Garlic Salt

Simmer for about 20-30 minutes on low, stirring occasionally. You want to incorporate the flavors as well as cook the garlic a bit. Raw garlic has a bite to it.

Once you have cooked it all down, then use a pastry brush to put it on a baguette cut in half lengthwise.  Make sure you get plenty of the chunky bits of garlic and parsley well distributed.
Bake @ 350 for 15 minutes and then put under the broiler for just a minute to brown. Add lemon zest from one lemon to the top of the bread and prepare to devour!
