Easy Delicious (Garlic) Bread

Easy Delicious (Garlic) Bread

Serves 12.

My mom used to make this often when we were growing up, and still does today as she knows it's one of my brother's favorites!  You can use a plain Italian loaf or one of the Italian loafs that is flavored with roasted garlic.  This works best with a loaf that has a slightly chewy (but not crunchy!) crust and a soft interior.

1 loaf Italian bread or Garlic Italian Bread
1 stick butter, softened (or melted)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Slice bread into 1" slices.  Spread softened butter (or use a basting brush for melted butter) on both sides of bread slices.  Push back together into a single loaf, wrap with foil, and bake for about 15-20 minutes, or until heated through.

A Note From The Little Lady: Because butter does not need to be refrigerated, you can make this ahead of time and leave it on your counter until ready to bake, which makes it a great go-to when entertaining or throwing dinner together on a busy night.
