Really good bread as our base: Banh Mi from Twelve Loaves to make the perfect garlic bread!
Get Started! Prepare everything you need:
- Place your butter in a bowl, cover, and let it soften naturally by leaving it at room temperature. You may want to do this a few hours before preparing everything else!
- Wash all fresh herbs and pat them dry before chopping them
- Slice your bread diagonally from the short end side, about quarter of an inch thick,so that it’s still strung together by the crust - as though slices would open like a book
- To make the herbed butter: mix softened butter, Sicilian garlic confit, arugula & basil pesto in a bowl and set aside
- To make the herb filling: coarsely chop fresh basil and parsley, combine, then add a dash of salt and olive oil and set aside
Assemble, Toast, and Eat:
- Line up your baking sheet or alimimun sheet with foil, big enough that you can wrap around and seal it with the bread inside
- Assemble your semi-sliced bread in the middle of the sheeted pan
- Slab generous amounts of herbed butter onto the creases of the bread- where you sliced it open
- Wrap and seal the foil
- Put it in the oven (or toaster) for 20 mins at 350F or until crunchy on the outside. Check every ten minutes and turn the bread so it is evenly toasted.
- Remove from oven when you see it a bit golden brown and toasted to perfection. This should be crusty on the outside and soft inside!
- Insert the chopped fresh herbs in those same creases for added freshness and serve immediately!
Option to freeze and eat later (This can last in the freezer for months!):
- Follow steps 1-3 above
- Insert the chopped fresh herbs in those same creases where you brushed your butter
- Wrap in foil and place in an air-tight zip lock
- Ready to freeze!
