First, I made Garten’s “outrageous” garlic bread, which is meant to be a modern twist on the classic side dish.
In her “Modern Comfort Food” cookbookGarten wrote that she wanted to update the traditional 1960s garlic bread recipe, which was “usually soft, doughy Italian bread dripping with garlic butter.”
“I took a fresh look and made the ultimate garlic bread by spreading a crusty baguette with lots of slow-cooked garlic, Parmesan, parsley and lemon zest and baking it until it’s nicely browned on top,” she added. . † “It’s so good!”
To make Garten’s “outrageous” garlic bread at home, you’ll need:
- A crispy French baguette
- 1 bulb of garlic
- 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
- 12 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 2 teaspoons lemon zest
- ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
- Fresh parsley
Unlike Stewart’s recipe, Garten’s bread comes with lots of butter — and more than double the garlic.
