Oh how we just LOVE garlic bread – but… in my household the average French loaf garlic bread that you buy in the shops is just always too little. We want more – we always want more of that buttery garlic inside and the crusty outside … dammit, I just want more of the flavoursome bread!

So, I decided to take your normal sliced, average bread loaf and make this into a BIG garlic bread for my friends the other day. This is an adaptation or should I rather say step-up of the normal garlic loaf. My friends were all crazy about it but the only thing – it was still not enough!! But … everyone at least had a few delicious slices to savour. icon smile #garlic bread   go big or go home

It’s your choice how much garlic you want to add to the butter – but in my case, this would be loads … let’s face it, it’s not called garlic bread for nothing!

I say go big or go home!

  1. Sounds lovely. I also like to spread a bit of Bovril or Fray Bentos on the butter garlic mix, followed by grated cheddar cheese.

    However, you can leave the Boril out and only add the grated cheddar cheese on top of the butter garlic mix.


  2. OOOhhh Man… So the one loaf would feed the man and I… What about the rest of our guests… LOL… have the same problem here so I will def be trying this for the next “Do”.. Thank you

  3. Sounds lovely. I also like to add some grated cheddar cheese to the butter and garlic. Alternativly, one can spread the garlic butter on the bread, then some Bovril or Fray Bentos followed by grated cheese.
