Garlic bread

Garlic bread goes great with pasta dishes. Its easy to buy frozen but I dont like the taste of garlic powder in it. Also when I make it at home, I can control the ingredients that go in it. Its fairly simple to make and tastes yum. The portion below makes about 15-18 pieces. I like pieces of garlic so I just chopped it, if you like it finer, you can mash it or make a paste.

Ingredients:

1 loaf french bread
8-10 tablespoons salted butter at room temperature
1 tablespoon fresh or 1 teaspoon dried parsley
5-6 cloves garlic, chopped

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Mix the butter, parsley and garlic. Cut the bread into slices. Apply the butter on the slices and bake for 5-7 minutes. Then broil for 2-3 minutes till the top is golden and sizzling. 
If you want to freeze some for later, before baking, chill them first so the butter solidifies and then pile together and freeze them. To cook them, remove from freezer and cook as given above allowing 2-3 extra minutes to bake.
