Quick and scrumptious garlic bread that will complement any Italian meal. Melted mozzarella is optional, but delicious!
- Ready In:
- Italian bread
- 5 tablespoons butter, softened
- 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
- 3 garlic cloves, crushed
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- salt and pepper
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1. Preheat the broiler.
- 2. Cut the bread into slices 1 to 2 inches thick.
- 3. In a small bowl, mix butter, olive oil, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper. Spread the mixture evenly on the bread slices.
- 4. On a medium baking sheet, arrange the slices evenly and broil 5 minutes, or until slightly brown. Check frequently so they do not burn.
- 5. Remove from broiler. Top with cheese and return to broiler 2 to 3 minutes, until cheese is slightly brown and melted. Serve at once.
- My Note: I used all of these ingredients, but assembled and baked it differently. I sliced the loaf (1/2 loaf of Italian Herb Bread from this site) in half lengthwise, like splitting a roll. I spread the butter mixture on both sides, then put them together and baked, at 350 in foil for 20 minutes. Then I added the cheese and baked the bread open-faced until the cheese melted. Served with Chicken Milano from this site. I used fresh oregano. Very good- I usually make my own garlic bread but this recipe is great.
- The only advice I have for future garlic bread makers is DON"T try to broil it on a flat pan or stone! It works best in a deep dish, that way the oils don't drip out. I loved the combination of both olive oil and butter. I used a little less oregano than called for but it, too, was a nice addition. I also added some finely chopped parsley which gave it some freshness and color. Still, I think I must stress that this will only be as good as the quality of the bread you use. Next time I might try adding a little parmesan cheese to the bread over the garlic butter, just family preference but it is definitely not needed.
