GARLIC BREAD RECIPE

The origins of garlic bread aren’t very well-known, but what I do know is the popularity of this dish is remarkable across the world! When you look at the basics, it’s similar to a bruschetta so I invite you to try my authentic Italian variation of garlic bread which is all about a delicious creamy paste, smothered on crispy golden ciabatta bread. What would I call it? Bruschetta aglio e olio and it is absolutely, positively DIVINE!

HOW TO MAKE GARLIC BREAD LIKE AN ITALIAN

italian garlic bread

INGREDIENTS:
Ciabatta Bread
3 tablespoons Pecorino Romano
3 garlic cloves
Fresh parsley (chopped)
Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)

 

UTENSILS:
Chopping board
Long bread knife
Baking paper
Baking tray
Mixing bowl
Garlic press/crusher
Spatula
Serving plate

 

METHOD:

  1. Garlic bread is best served crisp from the oven, so pre-heat yours to 200°C/330°F.
  2. Cut the ciabatta in half and place it on a baking tray lined with baking paper (inside facing up).
  3. Crush the 3 cloves of garlic using your press/mincer or blend them up really finely, and add to the mixing bowl.
  4. Add up to 10 tablespoons of EVOO to the bowl and mix to combine using a whisk before adding the parsley and pecorino cheese.
  5. If the consistency is lumpy and thick, add some more EVOO until it becomes a little runnier.
  6. Once you are happy with your cream, lather it all over the inside of the bread using a spatula. Try to keep this as even as possible but concentrate on smothering it all over!
  7. Place the garlic bread in the oven at 200°C/330°F for 10 minutes or until it starts to turn a beautiful golden colour.

VINCENZO’S PLATE TIP: The time it takes to cook will depend on your oven as well as the size of your bread so keep an eye it and once the smell is quite strong, keep an eye on the colour removing it from the oven when ready.

  1. If your oven doesn’t cook even all around, open the oven after 6 minutes and turn them around.
  2. Once the garlic bread has been in the oven for 10 minutes, turn the grill/broiler on and leave it to crisp up for one final minute.
  3. Remove from the oven, leave to cool.

HOW TO SERVE:
Slice the garlic bread into beautiful thick pieces alongside a mixture of olives, cold meats and pickled vegetables – or, just eat it on its own. Be prepared for a crispy, oily, garlic explosion in your mouth!
