Lilys Garlic Bread
The traditional accompaniment to a tri-tip barbecue in central California is buttery, garlic-soaked toasted bread. Yum!
- Total Time:
- 15 min
- 5 min
- 10 min
- 6 to 8 servings
- 1 loaf French bread (about 1 pound)
- 4 ounces (1 stick) butter
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
Prepare a fire in a barbecue or preheat a broiler.
Cut French bread in half lengthwise. Place butter and garlic in a large roasting pan and heat over the barbecue or on top of a stove until butter melts. Place bread halves, cut sides down, on the barbecue grate and cook until toasted golden brown (if using a broiler, toast bread cut sides up until golden brown). Lift bread off barbecue (or remove from broiler) and place face down in melted butter mixture in roasting pan; push the bread around a bit to get the butter to soak in. Remove bread from butter and tear into pieces or slice to serve.
