8 tablespoons unsalted butter (1 stick), at room temperature
2 medium garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves
1/2 teaspoonkosher salt
1 loaf Italian or French bread (about 1 pound), cut in half horizontally
No Italian-American meal seems complete unless there’s a basket of garlic bread on the table. A simple mixture of butter, garlic, parsley, and salt is spread onto Italian or French bread, then the bread is baked until toasted and crispy. This comforting favorite is a classic companion to Spaghetti and Meatballs, but it would also be great alongside CHOW’s Chicken Parmesan Meatloaf Muffins.
