Crispy garlic bread

This recipe can be used to make the garlic croutons served with this dish, but in this case you may wish to use slices of a thin baguette rather than slabs of bread.
I think garlic bread goes with anything, especially Mediterranean food. You may have gathered by now that I love garlic.
Of course you can buy pre-made garlic bread from the supermarket, but this is so quick to make that there’s not much point. This also gives you a nice crispy slice, rather than the softer pieces you get in a stick.

Crispy garlic bread
Serves 4
2 shop-bought part-baked petit pains (or homemade bread rolls)
75g butter
3 cloves garlic, finely minced
Small handful parsley, finely chopped
Preheat the oven to 190°C (Gas mark 5 / 375°F).
In a bowl, mix the butter, garlic and parsley until soft and spreadable. Halve the rolls lengthwise and spread with the garlic butter. Bake for 10 minutes, or until hot and crisp.
