LEMON GARLIC BREAD — Traditional garlic bread gets a fresh twist with a sprinkling of lemon zest.
I’ll take a slice (or two….or three) of crusty garlic bread with almost any meal. It’s one of those things I just can’t resist. And this Lemon Garlic Bread is a fabulous way to fancy-up your average baguette.
The subtle lemon flavor pairs perfectly with the garlic and makes this loaf something you can serve with any meal.
It’s such a simple thing to add a sprinkling of lemon zest, but it turns an average loaf of garlic bread into something extra special.
This lemony garlic bread is especially wonderful alongside a creamy pasta dish, or some grilled chicken. Served with a hearty salad, it even makes for a fabulous light lunch or dinner.
The recipe is really more of a guideline than something you need to follow exactly, so feel free to adjust the amount of garlic and lemon to suit your tastes. Enjoy!
