Jen's Mistake - Aka Herbed Ginger & Garlic Bread
20 mins (prep 10, cooking 10)
7 ingredients
0.75 servings
I was busy making what I thought was a garlic butter to spread on my french bread when I thought I'd better taste it to see if it needed more garlic. Well, I thought it did, so I kept adding more and more......til I saw that the jar I was using was actually ginger LOL......I then grabbed the right jar and added in the garlic & herbs & after tasting decided it was ok :) At the time I was making a large amount for a crowd but have scaled it back to post. Use more or less of the ginger & garlic to suit your taste. One advantage I did find was that as so often happens with garlic bread this didn't 'repeat' on me :) I now use this all the time and the family all ask for "that 'mistake' garlic bread" LOL :)
