Garlic roasted and mashed, added to butter with fresh herbs and spices, makes the most mouth watering garlic bread ever!
Summer cookouts are complete when whatever tasty grilled main dish accompanies garlic bread. My favorite summer dinners are simply a perfectly grilled steak or chicken breast, a nice salad, a baked potato and a crusty loaf of toasted garlic bread.
I dreamt up a burger recently deemed the “Italian Burger.” It is made on a garlic bread bun! Holy buckets, people it was so good!
Sure, I could have made garlic bread with regular ol garlic powder – but I wanted that fresh roasted garlic flavor. I decided it was time to christen my new garlic baker. I had always roasted garlic in foil … I am so tickled I don’t have to do that anymore. This thing rocks!
Simply place the bulbs in the bottom of the baker, drizzle with olive oil and Italian seasoning. Place the terracotta lid over the top and roast in the oven. You house will smell amazing! Squeeze the cloves out of the bulbs and mash to make the butter.
Once it’s all combined, spread over Italian loaves, and bake or grill.
Take it one step further and top with with Mozzarella cheese before baking. More cheese? Yes, Please!
Speaking of butter .. last summer I made these Herb Butter Filet Mignon .. and OH MY!! Were they good! Perfectly done. Every. Single. Time.
Let’s not forget about my Copy Cat Texas Roadhouse Cinnamon Honey Butter!! I made this recipe for Thanksgiving a couple of years back, and it was so good, we make it all of the time now!
My friend, Michele, from West Via Midwest has a couple of recipes that have some pretty amazing butters, too!! Do yourself a favor and check out her Cajun Shrimp Appetizer–A simple yet impressive recipe that mimic’s Ruth’s Chris famous Spicy BBQ Shrimp. It’s full of flavor from garlic, spices and Cajun butter drizzled over the top of succulent shrimp. Also this Grilled Steak with Bourbon Garlic Butter -Melted Bourbon Garlic butter blankets seared on the outside, juicy, tender on the inside steaks for an easy BBQ meal for entertaining.
