Herbed Garlic Bread

For dinner tonight, I made some delicious Potato-Leek Gratin. I love fall!

To go with it, I tried out this Martha Stewart recipe for garlic bread with a nice loaf of Italian bread from Wegmans. I liked it a lot.

Different fresh or dried herbs can be used to suit your taste or the time of year.

1/2 cup loosely packed flat-leaf parsley leaves, coarsely chopped
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
2 medium cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup olive oil
1 12-inch-long loaf Italian-style white bread

1. Heat oven to 350°. Whisk together parsley, thyme, lemon juice, garlic, salt, pepper, and olive oil in a small bowl.

2. Using a bread knife, slice loaf into 12 half-inch pieces, cutting only 3/4 of the way through the loaf so that it stays intact. Brush herb mixture liberally between each slices. Wrap loaf loosely in foil. Heat until warm, about 10 minutes. Serve immediately.

Yield: 4 servings
