Pub food #2: Garlic bread

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.

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,
