Ingredients

Ingredients
  • 1 head of garlic
  • 2 teaspoons melted unscented coconut oil
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • ½ loaf sandwich bread
  • Chef notes

    Roasting the garlic till it becomes sweet and jammy makes all the difference in this garlic bread preparation.

    Preparation

    Preheat the oven to 275°F.

    Trim the tips off the top of the garlic and put it in a small baking dish. Drizzle with the oil. Roast until it becomes soft, 30 minutes. Let it cool for 15 minutes.

    Increase the oven temperature to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

    Squeeze the garlic cloves into a small bowl and discard the husk. Add the butter, salt, and the red pepper flakes and, using a rubber spatula, stir the mixture to form a paste.

    Cut the bread lengthwise down the center. Spread the garlic butter generously on the cut sides and put them on the prepared baking sheet, cut side up.

    Bake for 8 minutes, and then rotate the baking sheet 180 degrees. Bake until golden brown, 5 minutes. Let the garlic bread cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before serving.
