Still reeling from the news that Australia is running out of garlic bread, Lisa had a bloody great idea that no-one seemed to have raised as yet (pun intended).
WHY NOT JUST MAKE SOME?
Pete, who’s been in tears from the news since it broke (it’s the Italian in him), instantly perked up, and asked Lisa for the recipe.
C’mon, it doesn’t get much easier than that.
If you can't be bothered watching the video, here's how. You will need:
- 2 pre-baked french baguettes (or similarly long rolls)
- 2 cloves garlic
- 60 grams butter, cubed, at room temperature
- 1 bunch parsley
Preheat oven to 200 degrees celcius.
In a food processor, blitz the garlic and parsley. Once that's done, add the butter and keep blitzing until it makes a paste.
With a serrated bread knife, cut the baguettes at angles, about 4 cm apart. DO NOT cut all the way through the bread, rather, about three quarters of the way through.
Get a bread knife and spread smears of the garlic butter paste in-between each "portion".
Bake in the oven for 10 or so minutes, or until the bread goes crispy brown.
Of course, we say it’s easy. But even capable chefs like The Swedish Chef can bugger things up from time to tim ;) Even bread.
