Garlic, Butter, Bread and Basil. Really could you ask for anything more? Freshly baked bread smothered with basil infused butter, sprinkled with finely chopped garlic and then baked for a few minutes to melt everything in and slightly toast the bread. This is the ultimate garlic bread. The basil brings it to a whole new level.
I’ve been off the bread for the past few weeks, so I decided if I was going to make an exception, it was going to be well worth it. I picked up some freshly baked bread from Bay Cities, this amazing Italian market here in Santa Monica. Basically it’s like the best place in the world. And if you’re in town visiting for a bit, it’s worth a trip. They have amazing ingredients, freshly made sandwiches that will rock your world, and piping hot bread every few hours that makes the store smell incredible. So after grabbing some fresh bread, and perhaps a pound of burrata (only the best cheese on earth to make one of these flatbreads for my fiancee) I headed home to whip up some life changing garlic bread!
