An easy way to add pizazz to any meal is with this herb buttered bread recipe.
  • 1 loaf of French bread
  • 1 stick or 8 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 teaspoons fresh basil, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh chives, finely chopped
  • Dash of salt and fresh ground pepper
  1. Combine the butter, herbs and spices in a small mixing bowl. Mix well with a fork until well blended.
  2. Thickly slice the bread loaf almost all the way through, but not completely.
  3. Spread each slice with the herb butter.
  4. Wrap the loaf in aluminum foil and seal ends.
  5. Place over a medium fire and cook for about 10 minutes, while turning two or three times. During the last 4 minutes, open the foil to allow the smoke flavor to permeate the bread.
  6. Remove from the grill and pull each slice apart. Serve with remaining butter.
Note: Any excess butter can be wrapped in plastic food wrap and formed into a log. Place in the refrigerator or freezer. Why not make a large batch so that you’re assured leftovers? Try brushing it on grilled fish or seafood. Also great on grilled or steamed vegetables.
