|I eat bread with nearly every meal, especially soup, salad, and pasta (obviously I’m not a low-carb diet fan). Plain French or Italian bread is wonderful, but nice hot garlic bread can be a real treat.|
|Directions||Preheat oven to 400.
Cut the bread in half lengthwise. Spread each half with butter, then sprinkle with garlic, salt, and parsley.
Put the halves back together, cover with foil, and bake for 15-20 minutes, until bread is crispy on the outside and golden brown on the inside.
|Notes||To make it easier for people to serve themselves, cut the bread before baking: Lay out each half butter-side up. Every 2 inches or so, begin to cut but don’t go all the way through – only go about half-way. This will keep each half of the loaf in one piece which you can then wrap up and bake, but once cooked it can easily be torn apart.|
