Recipe Top Tips!

Yes, you can buy readymade cheese and garlic bread in any good supermarket, but seriously, it will not be anywhere close to homemade. I like to use ciabatta for my garlic bread, I find it's far tastier than a regular baguette.

You can make this in the morning and, before baking, carefully wrap it in foil and store it in the fridge until you're ready to bake it later on.  

Garlic Bread Butter

Now, you can of course melt the butter completely, but the problem with that is you'll find the garlic will not be distributed evenly through the butter.

So, for that reason, I say it's best to use softened butter and that way all the garlic is in every bite of the bread.

The addition of Italian seasoning really makes this cheesy garlic bread. I use one from Sainsbury's - it's a blend of oregano, basil, red bell pepper, marjoram, thyme, rosemary, sage and parsley. It's perfect for homemade pizzas too! 

Butter

You may be wondering, why have I used unsalted butter and then added salt? It might be me, but I find salted butter too salty, this way you can make your own mind up how much salt you add.

Ingredients in this recipe

1 x 270g stonebaked ciabatta loaf - mine was from Tesco's

100 g unsalted butter softened

a pinch of salt

¼ teaspoon garlic granules

3 garlic cloves minced

¾ teaspoon Italian seasoning

80 g cheddar - grated

80 g  mozzarella cheese grated

2 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley for sprinkling
