Garlic Bread with Parsley

  • Servings: 6

Source: Martha Stewart Living, April 2005


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 2 garlic cloves, very finely minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt, or to taste
  • 1 baguette, preferably sourdough


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small saucepan, melt butter over a low heat until foamy. Add garlic, and simmer, 1 minute. Remove from heat, and let steep for 1 minute. Add parsley and salt; stir to combine.

  2. Slice bread lengthwise almost all the way though, leaving one side uncut. Open baguette like a book, and evenly brush or spoon the butter mixture over the bread.

  3. Close baguette, and slice bread diagonally into 2-inch pieces, leaving the bread still intact at the back of the loaf.

  4. Transfer bread to a baking sheet. Bake until heated through and crisp on the outside, about 10 minutes. Serve hot.
