Well it’s official, summer’s winding down. The kid’s are back in school, football is back and sadly the days are becoming noticeably shorter every passing day. You’ve got one last barbecue blast to go to but you’ve taken every potluck recipe you can think of  this past summer. Well here’s an easy tagalong that will have everyone drooling… Herb Garlic Bread.

Some say bread is the staple of life… my vote goes to garlic bread. The perfect complement to any meal, a crisp crust with a soft buttery center and the perfect amount of garlic and herbs, yum. And talk about simple, just about any form of bread will do and after mixing the garlic and herbs into some soft butter it’s just a matter of slicing the loaf of bread and slathering on the butter. Be generous, you don’t want to leave any in the bowl… that would be a waste.

Once you have that accomplished wrap the loaf tightly with some heavy foil and throw it in the oven. You can even wait till you get to the cookout and grill it along with the other items if you like.

This recipe is so versatile you can adjust the ingredients and ways you cook it to fit any circumstance… it may be the perfect recipe!
