>Garlic Bread

Making your own fresh garlic bread is very easy and so much tastier than those frozen bags from the grocery store. Making garlic bread at home is another way of using bread that might otherwise go to waste. Fresh garlic is recommended, but the jarred chopped garlic will work as well.

Ingredients:

1 loaf French bread (I used leftovers from the French bread recipe)
1/2 cup salted butter (1 stick)
3 cloves garlic (about 2 teaspoons)
1/2 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp salt
pinch pepper

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Slice up the bread if not pre-sliced.

Melt the butter in a saucepan using low heat. While the butter is melting, add the garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper. Turn the burner to simmer, and allow the flavors to meld for a few minutes.

Spread a large piece of aluminum foil out on the counter. Dip both sides of each piece of bread in the butter mixture, and place into the foil. Repeat this step until all pieces have been dipped.

Wrap up the bread in the foil, and place into the oven. Bake for 20 minutes. Carefully remove from the oven, and serve hot.

* Alternatively, for crispy bread, lay the dipped slices flat onto a baking sheet, bake for 15 minutes, flipping once halfway.
