These are your ingredients. Butter, garlic,¬†grated parmesan cheese, dried basil and olive oil. Our pinch of salt didn’t make it into the pic, but, is a part of the action.

IMG_2348Cut the butter up into chunks and smear it around a little.

IMG_2347Peel and chop the garlic. Then sprinkle a pinch of salt on it and squash it with the side of your knife to make the pieces smaller. The salt will absorb the juices and add to the flavor of the finished product

IMG_2350With a butter knife mix the butter, garlic, cheese and basil all together. Then form a kinda lagoon for the shot of olive oil then mix the oil in until it’s all smooth.

IMG_2352Smear it on the bread, or breads, of your choice to create your garlic bread. We have here some slices of gluten free for Gammy, some chunks of ciabatta and some slices of a baguette that we had in the freezer.

IMG_2353Toast up what you are going to use now in your toaster oven or your big oven..
