Olive and Thyme Crispy Garlic Bread
From Cook's Country
Preheating a baking sheet jump-started the crisping as soon as our Olive and Thyme Crispy Garlic Bread went into the oven. Cutting the loaf into slices (instead of making accordion slits in a whole loaf) exposed the most surface area to the oven, allowing for optimal crisping. To flavor our Olive and Thyme Crispy Garlic Bread, we steered clear of garlic powder and other processed options in favor of grated whole cloves of fresh garlic. It seemed unorthodox, but a bit of sugar added to our butter mixture tamed the garlic’s bite and sped up the browning.
Makes 12 slices
Start with a soft Italian bread, not a rustic, crusty loaf. Use a rasp grater or the small holes of a box grater to grate the garlic.
