043 - Garlic Bread #EasyCooking

I’m pretty sure most of you have been to Pizza Hut before. And I bet 90% of you do the same thing that I do whenever I’m there; ordering starters before the pizza. And I’m 100% sure the starters are GARLIC BREAD. Did I guess it right? Man! David Blaine gotta run for his money!

Yes Sir and Madam, today we’ll be making GARLIC BREAD

No no, don’t worry; this one is made on a fry pan instead of an oven. You know, cause, it’s easier for most of you (I know not everyone has an oven in their household!)

The great thing about this dish is, we’ll be turning the Butter into Clarified Butter, which tasted better, and also cooks better! Making this dish a top notch!


For 1 servings of 6, you will need:

1 medium sized Baguette. Baguette is a traditional French bread. It has a thick crust with a soft interior. What’s not to like?
2 tbsp of Butter. Preferrably Salted kind. If you’re using Unsalted, you will need to add a bit of Salt to compensate.
6 Cloves of Garlic
2 tsp of Dried Parsley


Ready? Here We Go!

Step 1 – Get a pan, turn up the heat to medium. Meanwhile, peel and smash the Garlic, as if you would smash the head of your enemy (HAHA!). Don't forget to cut the Baguette too!

Never liked the tip. Ugh.


If you got a bread knife, please use it. It'll give you the best cut. EVER.

Step 2 – Measure the butter and put it into the pan. Add the Garlic and let it cook away. Sorry, I meant melt away!

Gotta love the splashes!
Step 3 – The melting process should take around 30 seconds (room temperature butter), to 1-2 minutes (cold butter). It just so happens that i'm using unsalted butter at this point, so that's why i'm adding a touch of Salt to the pan. Careful, not too much. Nobody likes overly salty Garlic Bread!

Salty benefit
Step 4 - If you notice, there will be white scum forming on top. Grab a spoon, carefully pick it up, and throw it away. It poses no use. Pay attention to the heat, and stir it often to avoid burning the Garlic. You should smell lovely Garlic Butter by now! After it has reached to the point where the garlic has cook off its aroma completely, transfer it into a shallow dish to cool.

White scum? BE GONE

Step 5 - Add the Dried Parsley into the Butter, mix lightly.

Step 6 – Heat your non-stick pan on medium low heat. Once hot, carefully dip both sides of the bread to the butter, and cook it. We will leave it be for about 5-6 minutes on each sides! Once golden brown, it’s done!

The Flip!

Golden brown and ready!
Step 6 – SERVE!

Say bye-bye to Pizza Hut. This thing is so-so-so awesome!

Give this a go!
