Leftover garlic bread can be stored in an airtight container or wrapped in tin foil and kept in the fridge for up to 2 days. Of course, its best made and eaten on the same day for the best flavour.
- 3 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed

- 3tbsp finely chopped parsley
- 1 loaf French bread
- Heat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark .
- Mix the garlic into the softened butter with the parsley.

Top Tip for making Garlic bread
You can make this butter a few days in advance, wrap it tightly in cling film until needed. It can also be frozen, but don’t store for more than 1 month as garlic can develop a stronger flavour if kept for too long
