I’ll take a slice (or two….or three) of crusty garlic bread with almost any meal. It’s one of those things I just can’t resist. And this Lemon Garlic Bread is a fabulous way to fancy-up your average baguette.
The subtle lemon flavor pairs perfectly with the garlic and makes this loaf something you can serve with any meal.
The recipe is really more of a guideline, so feel free to adjust the amount of garlic and lemon to suit your tastes.
