No...I haven't baked that bread....it was one of those lazy weekends, we had got this baguette which is fresh and tastes heavenly, so what with Garlic Bread the flavours of Baguette brought out even more - I went for this Pizza house starters, as my breakfast menu! :D
I learnt this from a friend of mine. Its simplest, gets ready in ten mins.
1 medium baguette (french loaf)
1 tbspn unsalted butter at room temp
2-3 big garlic cloves ground to paste
Salt to taste
1/4 tsp dried herbs or simple fresh coriander finely chopped
250 gms mozzarella cheese shredded
Slice the baguette diagonally by one inch. Place on grilling rack.
Microwave the butter and garlic paste, for 30 seconds on high power, mix well and combine salt as per taste and the finely chopped coriander or dried herbs. Brush this on one side of the sliced baguette.
Spread the mozzarella cheese shreds on each.
Grill or Bake @ 350F until the cheese melts and turns golden. Serve with accompaniment or sauce of your choice...we had ours with chilli garlic ketchup.
If grilling in mw, set on combi mode, first round will take 5 mins- break into 3 mins, standing time a minute, another 2 mins its done. Second round will take less time as the grill is already hot. 3 mins. DONOT take out immediately the grill is working on the pieces even after the mw has stopped. So again a minute there, then serve hot.
