Decided to use this flavorsome butter to make a garlic bread. Used a ciabatta bread that was a day old and it came out super appetizing! My family ate every crumb! Next time I may use olive oil for a portion of the butter to see if it gives an extra flavor element and healthiness to the bread. As is is perfect though. I did add extra parsley than what the recipe called for. Thank you Nif for another keeper. Played if for Went to Market Spring tag game.
