1 head garlic
1/4 c unsalted butter
1 garlic clove, minced
1 pinch lemon pepper seasoning
sea salt
1/2 fresh parsley, minced
1 french baguette


Preheat your oven to 400 F.

Allow butter to come to room temperature.

Wrap the head of garlic up in heavy aluminum foil and bake for about 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool. The cloves should be very soft.

Once you can handle the cloves, squeeze the garlic out of the cloves and grind in a food processor. Turn out into a small bowl. Add the softened butter, minced garlic, lemon pepper and salt and mix until well blended. Add parsley and blend.

Cut the bread in half lengthwise and brush the butter on both sides, saving just a little to spread on top. Place the two halves together and brush the last little bit along the length of the bread.

Wrap tightly in foil and place in the oven for about 10 minutes. For a crustier surface open foil and cook for a few more minutes.


Total prep. & baking time: 50 minutes
