There is nothing more comforting than a bowl of fresh pasta — and especially if it's alongside garlic bread. Cheesy, garlicky, and often highly buttered, garlic bread is the essential accompaniment to any dish. Not to mention it's the perfect snack on its own when dipped in grandma's red sauce. To celebrate National Garlic Day, which falls on Saturday April 19th, this week we are all about great garlic bread recipes.
With so many delicious ways to enjoy garlic bread, we decided it would be the ideal theme for this week’s SWAT (Sharing With A Theme). We put the Culinary Content Network and our staff to the test to come up with garlic bread recipes and here are some of the highlights:
Andi Gleeson of The Weary Chef shared with us her recipe for irresistible cheesy pesto bread, which is an herbaceous twist on garlic bread. Gleeson is a member of the Culinary Content Network.
Lauren Gordon, the entertain editor at The Daily Meal, made a healthy garlic bread complete with whole wheat bread and herbs.
The winner this week is Patricia Stagich of Comfy Cook, who shared with us her recipe for warm and crunchy garlic bread that is waiting to be dipped into marinara sauce. Stagich is a member of the Culinary Content Network.
All of the recipes featured can be made at home for about $20 or less, excluding the cost of small amounts of basic ingredients such as butter, oil, flour, sugar, salt, pepper, and other dried herbs and spices.
