Garlic Bread

Garlic Bread
From SparkPeople


1 x French baguette
3 cloves garlic (depending on taste)
1-2 tsps each of dried thyme, oregano and rosemary (can use fresh if available)
1 cup grated cheese
3 tbsps Butter or margarine spread

Cut the baguette into 1inch slices (but don't cut all the way through the loaf) - makes about 12 slices. In the meantime, mix together the garlic, the mixed herbs, the butter and the cheese in a bowl. Make sure there is enough butter for spreading on the bread. Now evenly spread the garlic butter mixture in between each slice of the baguette.  Keep spreading until all mixture has been used. Wrap in aluminium foil. Tightly pinching together the opening of the foil. Bake in a pre-heated hot oven (around 200C) for approximately 15-20 minutes (or until garlic butter has all melted and baguette is crispy).  Take out, unwrap and serve.
Optional adjustments:
  • use 2 tsp italian seasoning in place of dried seasoning above.
  • cut half the butter and half the olive oil for a heart healthier version
  • cut herbs to 1 tsp if you prefer a less herby version
