Garlic Bread

018

Today is National Garlic Day.

There is a reason they call it the stinking rose. There is a sulfuric compound in garlic that does that. I personally believe that the good benefits of garlic outweigh a bit of bad breath.

Garlic has been used as both medicine and food for thousands of years. No wonder, It is a natural antioxidant. Garlic is used to prevent heart disease and helps reduce cholesterol.That is just a few of the awesome benefits of Garlic.

Which brings me to my post today. I have teamed up with a few other awesome bloggers to give you some other recipes with garlic in it. But wait, that is not all! we are also having an awesome giveaway.

Garlic Bread

This garlic bread is wonderful with any main dish you wish to serve. It goes particularly well with all kinds of Italian dishes. Round it out with a salad and you have the perfect supper.

Ingredients:

1 loaf Italian Bread cut horrizontally
1/2 stick butter
6 cloves garlic minced
2 teaspoons Italian Seasonings.
2 cups shredded Italian style blend cheese
2 tablespoons chopped chives

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place bread on a cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil crust side down.
In a small combine butter and garlic and Italian seasonings. Spread evenly on bread. Bake bread for 10 minutes then remove from oven. Sprinkle cheese all over bread and return back to the oven. Allow to cook another 5-7 minutes or until cheese is melted and gooey. Remove from oven and sprinkle with chop chives. Slice bread diagonally. Serve hot.

 

Here are a few of my fellow bloggers and some more wonderful garlicy recipes they came up with.

    This is a standard in our house, Vonnie. We can’t have barbecue or Italian anything without garlic bread. I love your addition of the cheese!

    I have these really amazing memories of a garlic bread my grandma used to make – it was the first “American” food that my Moroccan husband found he loved. You just can’t go wrong!!

    This is tough to answer because I use garlic in practically everything! I would say one of my favorite dishes with garlic is marinara sauce 🙂
