Marian's Killer Garlic Bread
Contributed by: Marian

Ingredients:


1 large loaf Sourdough Bread
6 Garlic Bulb
1/2 cup Butter

1/2 cup Dry White Wine
1 T Ground Oregano
Olive Oil

Preparation:

Prepare the Garlic Spread Ahead of Time:

Cut the heads off the garlic bulbs (about 1/2") to expose the garlic inside.  Arrange in a covered casserole and drizzle with olive oil.

Bake at 400°F for 30-45 minutes, until garlic is tender and almost like a paste.

Meanwhile, combine wine, butter and oregano in a small pot and bring to a simmer.  Simmer for about 15 minutes.

Once the garlic is finished, let it cool a bit, and then press the garlic 'paste' out of the bulbs by squishing with a spoon, or use your hands (it's messy).

Add to the wine and butter mixture and heat to a simmar.  Mash the garlic so it creates a sauce and cook until it is a bit thick.

Cool this down in the refrigerator for a few hours.

After the Spread Has cooled down:

Slice your bread to desired thickness and arrange in a large glass pan.  

Spread the garlic spread on each slice of bread and then arrange it so it is sort of "fanned out" in the glass pan.  Reserve about 1/4 cup of the spread and heat that up. 

Drizzle the heated spread over the bread once finished.

Heat in a 375°Foven for 20 minutes or so, until bread is golden brown.

 

Makes 6 servings.
