Ingredients
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup mixed herbs I used half basil, half parsley, packed
  • 6 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large sourdough or French bread load
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a small food processor, blend together the butter, herbs, garlic, salt, and olive oil until evenly combined.
  3. Cut the loaf of bread in half, lengthwise. Spread half of the herbed butter mixture on each side.
  4. Place the loaves in the oven, buttered side up, directly on the oven racks (this makes for a crispier crust). Cook for about 15 minutes, or until golden and bubbly.
  5. Remove from the oven, let cool slightly, and cut into slices.
