Garlic bread will give you a crisp, golden crust and a tender, buttery middle. The combination of garlic and fresh herbs creates a beautiful flavour that goes well with many Italian recipes.

  • 2 clove garlic, crushed

    Keeping bread slices attached at the base, slice baguette at 1.5cm intervals. Spread butter mixture in between slices. Wrap bread in foil and bake in oven for 15 minutes. Serve immediately.


The baguettes can be frozen before baking, but you will need to increase the cooking time to 30 minutes.
