“Sure. Sex is great. But have you tried garlic bread?”
While I can’t take credit for those amazing words of truth (I wish I could, but I believe that they’re from a meme I stumbled across online a couple of years ago), I can make your life a little brighter by sharing my go-to garlic bread recipe.
This isn’t your regular foil-wrapped supermarket variety of garlic bread. No, no. This is homemade and delicious. Swoon-worthy, yet almost effortless. I implore you to do yourself a favour and skip the store-bought. Make this easy garlic bread instead. You won’t look back.
Several years ago, a friend of mine told me her secret to making standout garlic bread. No, she doesn’t use a fancy hard-to-find ingredient specially imported from the corners of the Earth. Instead she uses something found in almost every kitchen: mayonnaise. Simple comforting, always reliable, mayonnaise (I’m an Hellmann’s girl if anyone is interested). It sounds strange, for sure. But since adding it to my garlic bread after my friend suggested it, I’ve not looked back. I don’t think you will either.
Garlic Bread Spread
- 1 sick of butter, softenend
- 1 dollop of mayonnaise (in my world, that means Hellmann’s)
- 1 Tbsp chopped parsley
- 2-3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
- Combine all ingredients.
- Cover and refrigerate for an hour.
