Danny’s yummy homemade garlic breadPosted by Fiona Nevile in Bread, Rice and Pasta, Vegetables and Sides | 7 comments
Spaghetti bolognaise is one of our staples. Our recipe is more like the traditional Italian one with lots of vegetables and not so much meat as the UK version. It tastes delicious, you are not aware of the vegetables and isn’t as sickly and dense as some UK recipes can be. The great thing about our recipe is that it already has loads of veggies in it so there’s no real pressure to serve veg on the side. Although I do like a really fresh green salad.
Danny loves it too but insists on garlic bread. Up until last week we always bought this – the Tesco one is far better than the Waitrose one. Usually I have one knocking about in the fridge (they always have a pretty long sell by date on them – preservatives?). But last week the fridge was bare. Panic.
We had a white crusty loaf. So Danny ran up this impromptu garlic bread. He cut six chunky slices (300g), heated up 50g of butter and added 15g of crushed chopped garlic.
He spread the butter/garlic mixture on the inside faces of the slices – leaving the two end slices bare on the outside. Pressed the slices together and wrapped them in foil. He then popped the package in Andrew for 15 minutes at 200c.
This was absolutely wonderful. We’ll never ever darken the supermarket doors again in search of garlic bread.
