Basil Butter Garlic Bread
We recently had a pizza party for some of the kids in our neighborhood. Josh made six regular pizzas and two Chicago Deep Dish pizzas. The kids loved them. I helped out by making homemade pizza sauce and Basil Butter Garlic Bread. The Basil Butter Garlic Bread was the perfect appetizer to go with the pizza and it helped me use up some of our fresh basil-our plants are still growing like weeds.
This bread is easy to make. I used a Ciabatta loaf, but French bread would also work. You make the basil garlic butter in the food processor and slather it all over the bread. Put it in the oven until it is toasty and then load it up with Parmesan cheese and pop it back in the oven until the cheese is melted.
This jazzed up garlic bread is a great appetizer or side dish to any Italian meal. It would also be good with soup, salad, or even by itself. I wouldn’t mind sitting down with a loaf of this Basil Butter Garlic Bread. It might be dangerous though:) For step-by-step instructions and for the recipe, visit Tasty Kitchen. Thanks Jenna for the recipe. The bread was a hit at our pizza party!
And now for a few “housekeeping” items. Have you noticed the new Recipe Box icon next to the Print icon on the upper right-hand corner of each recipe card on my posts? We’ve added a new feature to Two Peas and Their Pod to make it easier for you to save your favorite recipes from our site to an online recipe box, then add the ingredients you need to your weekly shopping list with one click. It’s now that easy to save and make recipes you find on our site.
When you click the Recipe Box button you’ll have the option to add the recipe to your recipe box or to your shopping list. It’s so simple. I teamed up with ZipList.com to make this possible for my readers. They power the recipe boxes and shopping lists you find online at WomansDay.com, MarthaStewart.com, and now, Two Peas and Their Pod. You can save recipes from any of these websites, including ours, and they all get saved in one place.
If you want to access your online recipe box or shopping list from Two Peas and Their Pod, just click the Recipe Box or Shopping List tabs on the green navigation bar at the top of my website.You can also access your recipe box and shopping list from any partner website, as well as from ZipList.com and using free mobile apps from ZipList, so you have what you need to plan meals and grocery shop. We hope you will find this new feature helpful!
This weekend we are hosting a “Tailgating Party” for the Utah vs. BYU football game. It is the biggest rivalry game of the season for the Utes and we are excited! Both teams lost last week so I am sure they will both be ready to play. I am going to the store today to pick up all of our ingredients so we are ready to go on game day! Josh is going to grill some brats and portobello burgers. We are also going to have salad, Bush’s Baked Beans-Vegetarian and Maple Cured Bacon, and brownies for dessert. It should be a fun football weekend. GO UTES!
