I am in Idaho visiting my in-laws, and right when we showed up, my mother-in-law had a very tasty meal cooking for us. We always get fed so well when visiting my in-laws, and I never have to worry about what we are going to eat. My mother-in-law is so extremely organized, and plans her meals a month at a time. She will alternate meals sometimes, but there is pretty much a plan. I called her very last minute and let her know that we were on our way to her house, and would be staying for a few days.
She just stuck an extra hunk of meat in the Crock Pot, pulled out an extra loaf of french bread, and started baking a cake, (That recipe will be coming soon). She improvised very well. I’m sure she thinks I’m strange because I started asking her if I could take pictures of her food. 😉 I wanted to share her easy Garlic and Parsley French Bread recipe, or concoction. I get afraid to use fresh herbs sometimes because I don’t always know what they will pair well with. I just need to get over it, because they are fabulous! My mother-in-law used some fresh parsley from her garden, and came up with a very tasty bread.
Simply slice up any kind of bread you like, into 1″ thick pieces. Get about 1/4 cup of butter and soften it in the microwave, but do not melt. Stir in about 1 Tbs dehydrated garlic, or fresh if you have it, and some chopped parsley. I would say she used about 1-2 Tbs of parsley. Fresh is best!! Lightly stir and spread onto each piece of bread. Bake at 400°, until golden. It takes about 5-7 minutes, but keep a close eye on it. It is bread after all, and tends to burn if you aren’t careful.
I know this is super simple, but is a fun and easy way to jazz up your bread.
