Keyword: garlic bread on BBQ, grilled garlic bread
Servings: 6- 8 people
1bread loaf, fairly flat (rather than a tall loaf, Note 1)
3garlic cloves, very finely chopped (do not use crusher or jar, Note 2)
1tbspfinely chopped parsley, optional
Preheat BBQ to medium high.
Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium high heat.
Add garlic and salt, stir until garlic is LIGHT golden and salt is dissolved.
Immediately remove from heat, set aside for for few minutes to let garlic infuse into butter.
Split the bread in half lengthwise. Or use thick individual slices of bread.
Spoon just over half the butter onto the cut face of the bread, avoiding the garlic bits. Brush a bit of butter on the other side.
Place bread cut face down and cook for 3 - 5 minutes or until you have crusty edges, then flip.
Brush away any burnt garlic bits, then baste on the remaining garlic butter. Garlic bits are mainly for flavour infusion but feel free to put them on too, great texture!
Once underside is crusty (3 min or so), remove, sprinkle with parsley, cut and serve!
1. Bread shape - about 35cm / 14" long, 4 - 5cm / 1.5 - 2" thick.You want a bread that's not too tall / thick otherwise you'll feel like there's not enough butter to bread ratio.If you can only find tall traditional shaped bread loaves, just cut thick slices and make individual garlic bread slices instead! 2. Garlic - don't use a garlic crusher or garlic from a jar, the garlic is too fine and too wet so it will just splatter everywhere and burn too quickly in the butter.
