Garlic Basil Bread


Months ago I had some basil that I knew was going to go bad if I didn't find a use for it. It was a night where bread would make the perfect accompaniment. So I threw together this dish, and on a whim, decided to photograph it separately so I could share the recipe.

Except, its really more preparation than a recipe. It takes barely a minute to fully prepare this and the rest of the time is the bread getting nice and crispy in the oven. So I hesitated to share it with you, but hey, everyone needs something a little fancier than store-bought garlic bread sometimes, right?
