What is a braai without garlic bread? Really? A braai is just not a braai without this little nom nom side-dish now is it? Add cheese to that and well, you’ve got real happy people at your braai. Braais at our house are always accompanied by garlic bread and mushroom sauce and that is just how it’s always gonna be forever and ever. It’s tradition. So here’s a recipe for you to start this tradition in your house too!
Delicious cheesy garlic bread for a braai / barbeque. Everyone wants a slice, or two!
- 1 French Loaf
- 90ml Butter
- 30ml Garlic, minced
- 30ml Parsley, chopped finely
- 1 cup Cheddar Cheese
- ¼ teaspoon Salt
- ¼ teaspoon Black Pepper
- Slice the garlic bread into slices approximately 2cm thick but don’t cut all the way through to the bottom, stop just before the base of the roll.
- Mix the butter, garlic, parsley, salt and pepper together.
- Spread the garlic butter on each slice of bread – you don’t need to butter each side (of each slice) but if you have butter left over, then feel free to do so!
- Wrap the loaf in tinfoil and cook at 180°C for ten minutes.
- After 10 minutes, open up the tinfoil to expose the top of the garlic roll and sprinkle the cheese over.
- Place the garlic bread back in the oven (still with the top of the loaf exposed) and allow the cheese to melt. This should take 5-7 minutes. Take out and enjoy. If you prefer crispy cheese, place the loaf under the grill for 5 minutes.
