The next installment in the pub food series is the most common one: Garlic bread. This recipe is very easy, it only requires six ingredients and it can be done in less than 3 minutes. Cooking takes about 10 minutes; so you will have garlicky, cheesy and spicy garlic bread on your table in no time. Let’s make it.
You will need:
2 small cloves of garlic
Pinch of salt
4 tablespoons of olive oil
1 mozzarella ball
1 loaf of multigrain bread or ciabatta
2 pinches of mixed, Italian dried herbs
Let’s get going.
Chop you garlic cloves and add them to the mortar. Add a pinch of salt and bash it until it becomes like a paste.
Add the olive oil and one pinch of mixed herbs and mix with the pestle.
Cut your bread lengthwise and using a teaspoon spread the flavoured olive oil on the bread.
Using your fingers shred the mozzarella ball and spread it over the bread.
Put it in the oven until the cheese melts.
Take it out, sprinkle with the rest of the herbs and cut into portions.
Serve with an ice cold beer!
-If you like the taste of garlic you can increase the quantity. I like it very garlicky so I added two large cloves.
-If you are on the spicy side, you can add in the olive oil mixture one teaspoon of crushed, dried chilies.
-You can serve you garlic bread with a marinara sauce dip.
Until next time,
