Garlic bread with herbs

Garlic bread with herbs

This irrestistible garlic bread includes plenty of fresh herbs. You can vary the overall flavour according to the combination of herbs you choose. This loaf makes an excellent addition to a barbecue. If space permits, place the foil-wrapped loaf on the top of the barbecue and cook for about the same length of time as for oven baking. Turn the foil parcel over several times to ensure it cooks evenly.

You can make mini versions by using four small baguettes instead of one large one. You can also add chopped olives or sun-dried tomatoes to the butter with some grated lemon rind.
