Garlicky Garlic Bread
GoodMama, California

Here are two great ways to make very garlicky garlic bread.

Melt 1 stick of butter (please, pretty please, do this with real butter) on a very low flame (be careful to not burn it). When it is melted, add two or three LARGE cloves of garlic, finely minced or crushed and a little bit (maybe 1/16 of a tsp.) of basil. Continue to cook over low flame about 30 - 60 seconds... just long enough to get the garlic aromatic. Remove from heat. Slice a loaf of French bread or sour dough bread (our favorite) and generously spread the garlic butter over the bread with a pastry brush. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Put the bread in the oven about 10 minutes to warm it through; then turn on the broiler and brown the bread. Keep an eye out so you don't burn it. Remove it from the oven and slice it on the diagonal (because you know all food sliced on the diagonal tastes better).

Okay, here's a second way to do your garlic bread. Slice your loaf of bread in half lengthwise. Place the bread under the broiler naked (yep, no butter, no garlic, nada...) until the bread is toasted. Remove from broiler. Peel the paper off of a large clove of garlic, and - using the toasted bread as a grater - grate the garlic right into the bread! You can grate as much or as little as you like. Get another clove if the one you started with gets to be too small before you finish. After the bread is full of that lovely garlic smell, butter the bread over the garlic (please, pretty please, use real butter). Sprinkle a little basil over the bread. Put the bread back together like a whole loaf, and wrap in foil. Place in 350 degree oven for about 10 - 15 minutes or until the bread is warmed through.
