Garlic Bread from Commander’s Palace
Updated: Jan 4
Now that grilling season is here, this is a great item to serve with anything off the grill, or stove. I’m sure that when most people think of Garlic Bread, they don’t think of Commander’s. But this is the best Garlic Bread in New Orleans.
1 poor boy loaf of French bread
3 sticks softened Butter
1 medium head fresh Garlic, chopped
4 Tbs. dried Dill (or 1/2 cup fresh Dill)
1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan Cheese
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
1. Slice the poor boy loaf crosswise into two equal pieces, and then from end to end.
2. Heat 2 Tbs. of the butter in a skillet over medium heat until it melts. Add the chopped garlic and cook until you can smell the aroma of the garlic.
3. Put the remaining butter into a bowl and stir in the garlic butter from the skillet and the dill.
4. Spread the butter mixture very generously across the open face of the poor boy bread. Sprinkle the parmesan cheese over the bread.
5. Put the bread on a baking pan and into the oven until it browns around the edges and the aroma is driving you wild with desire.
6. Cut the bread crosswise into crescents about an inch thick, and serve very hot.
