Spiced Garlic Bread

Well, another lazy day :D.... made me think what can i do which is quick and yummy...hmmmm....may not be healthy..... but you know...sometimes I feel like having a magic spell or a wand might have helped a lot!! :P.... OK...frankly...how many of you don't agree???

First of all, planning a menu ....everyday!!!....is a hell of a work...because you have to think...think... n think and finally decide what is edible for all and how feasible to cook!!
Gosh...if i get an opportunity i can write a novel on "Life of a Home cook.....a never ending journey"....LOL...OK...i need to hold my horses!!

Coming back to my post...I had bought a Baguette some days back and didn't end up eating it.....didn't realize....so wanted to consume it before it got spoiled.
Decided on making spiced garlic bread...you need to try this as it was goooood!! :)

Spiced Garlic Bread

  • 1 Baguette or any Italian Loaf Bread
  • 4 tbsp Minced Garlic or Store bought Garlic Powder
  • a pinch of salt
  • 4 Tbsp Unsalted Butter at room temperature
  • 1 Tbsp Parsley Flakes
  • 2 Tbsp Dried Oregano
  • 1 Tsp Paprika
  • 1/4 tsp Black pepper powder
  • Red Chili Flakes as per choice (optional)
  • 1 cup of Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

  •  Baking Tray
  • Aluminum Foil

  • Preheat oven at 325 Degree F for 10 mins.
  • In a bowl, add butter,salt,garlic,parsley,oregano,paprika,black pepper powder and mix well.
  • Slice baguette...not too thick.
  • Apply this butter and spice mixture on baguette.
  • Cover the baking tray with foil. I do this just to avoid a mess.
  • Place the baguette slices on tray.
  • Garnish these with mozzarella and red chili flakes.
  • Bake for 5 mins or till the bread is crisp and cheese is melted.

  • Adjust spice levels as per your choice.
  • You can use any bread and cheese combo as per your choice.
  • I didn't use Red chili flakes in this but if you wish you can use. 
  • Make sure you use salt in the mixture wisely as if you are using salted butter and cheese then  bread might end up being salty.
Enjoy Eating!! :)
