Garlic Bread

Pin It

Homemade garlic bread is easy to make and so comforting. This recipe is a tad healthier, using a combination of olive oil and butter. We even like to replace the butter with olive oil altogether - can't even tell the difference! Fan of cheesy garlic bread? I usually top one of the halves with mozzarella - it's delicious both ways, and this way we don't have to choose. It'd be downright silly to forget the Marinara Sauce for dunking... it's a match made in heaven!

Vegan: omit cheese

1 loaf Ciabatta bread (or other Italian loaf)
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp. olive oil
2 Tbsp. butter (I use vegan Earth Balance)
Dried basil for sprinkling
Dried oregano for sprinkling
Grated Parmesan-style cheese (vegetarian)
Mozzarella (optional)

Preheat oven to 375.
Melt butter in the microwave. Then add olive oil and garlic, stir to combine.
Cut the bread loaf in half, lengthwise. Brush the mixture on top of each half of bread.
Sprinkle with basil and oregano.
Place halves back together, wrap in foil, and bake for 15 minutes.
Remove bread from oven and turn on the broiler.
Separate the halves and sprinkle parmesan on top (and also mozzarella if using).
Return to oven under broiler for a minute or two. Be sure to keep an eye on it!
