The other night I made Italian food for dinner, my favorite! I had leftover Irish soda bread, so I decided to use it for my garlic bread. Even though it had rasins in it, it was a sweet compliment to the savory flavors of typical garlic bread. When making garlic bread, I love to heat the bread through, enough that it is warm to the touch. I then take a garlic clove and rub it against the warm bread, infusing the bread with that great garlic taste. I love garlic and whats even better is it’s great for you!
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 stick of organic butter
12 (1/2-inch thick) slices Irish soda bread
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons of fresh dill
2 garlic cloves
To make the garlic bread: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Drizzle the oil over the bread slices. For additional creaminess spread a thin layer of butter on each slice. Arrange the bread on a baking sheet. Heat the bread through, enough that it is warm to the touch. Then take a garlic clove and rub it against the warm bread, infusing the bread with garlic. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and freshly chopped dill. Place the bread back into the oven and bake until the bread is crisp and golden, about 5 minutes.
