Recipe for Greek Style Garlic Bread
Comments Off on Recipe for Greek Style Garlic Bread
Garlic is commonly used in Greek cuisine and this bread recipe is no exception! It features a standard white bread dough with whole garlic cloves baked in.
Greek Style Garlic Bread Recipe Ingredients:
- 1 recipe Greek bread
- 1 garlic bulb
- Greek olive oil, for brushing
Directions on How to Bake Greek Style Garlic Bread:
Prepare the Greek bread dough according to the recipe instructions.
Let the dough rise as is indicated in the recipe. When the dough has risen to double, punch the dough down to release the air.
Separate the cloves from the bulb and peel them individually. Keep them whole.
Knead the dough for about a minute and then gently knead in the garlic. Form the dough into loaf shapes as indicated in the original recipe instructions.
Brush a baking sheet with olive oil and place the loaves on the sheet after they have been formed.
Let the loaves stand so that they can rise until doubled. When they have risen enough, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
While the oven heats, brush the loaves with olive oil. Place the baking sheet in the center of the oven and bake until the loaves are golden brown. This should take 30-45 minutes. Tap on the loaf gently when you think it’s done. If it makes a hollow sound as if you’re knocking on a door, that means it’s cooked all the way through.
Let the loaves cool for about 15 minutes before cutting into them.
