1 loaf Italian or French bread 6 cloves garlic 1/2 tsp. water 1 Tbsp. butter 1/2 tsp. pepper 1 tsp. salt 1 tsp. Italian seasoning 5 Tbsp. butter, softened 1 Tbsp. olive oil
Honest-to-goodness Italian garlic bread - even better than the stuff from the pizza place. Begin by peeling the garlic cloves. Grate them against a rasp or crush in a garlic press. Mince afterwards if using a garlic press; you want to end up with something of a garlic paste. Place the garlic in a small skillet with 1/2 tsp. water and 1 Tbsp. butter. Heat over medium low heat until butter melts. Stir frequently - don't let it brown. Cook about ten minutes. The garlic will mellow in color and flavor, ending up with something more on the "yellow" side than the "white" side. Preheat oven to 400F. In a medium bowl, combine buttered garlic from your skillet with softened butter, olive oil and seasonings: salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. Cut the loaf of bread lengthwise, so you end up with two long skinny pieces. Spread the butter-garlic spread evenly over both pieces of bread. Put the bread back together, buttered sides together, and wrap tightly in foil. Place in 400F oven for 15 min. Remove from oven and unwrap. Place back in oven, buttered side up, to crisp. (If you want cheesy garlic bread, after the second baking, sprinkle cheese on top. Return it to the broiler to melt - just a couple minutes.) Serve with pizza or spaghetti and meatballs or your favorite Italian feast.
