Spicy Pesto Crispy Garlic Bread
If you follow our tips, perfect garlic bread is as near as your next loaf.
Why This Recipe Works
Preheating a baking sheet jump-started the crisping process as soon as our Spicy Pesto 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 Spicy Pesto 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 shortened browning time.
