Start of with a french baguette. It needs to be a good one! When buying it at the store, does it have that nice “crunch” when you squeeze it? That’ll be the difference to get a soft dough in the center with crispy crust.
If you’re making it all at once, just slice it down the center length-wise. Otherwise, be sure to save some for sandwiches later on.
If you bought garlic butter spread from Trader Joe’s, or another grocery store, just spread it on and you’re good to go! If not, follow these steps:
- Melt about 3 tablespoons of butter and spread over the sliced baguette;
- sprinkle some salt, some pepper, and some oregano on.
- Dice up some garlic, or spoon over some crushed garlic from the jar. Get a nice even spread.
Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees and there you go! Soft and crispy garlic bread.
