GARLIC LOVER'S PULL APART BREAD
What you'll need:
- 7-8 cups of bread flour
- 3 tbsp Sugar
- 2 tbsp Garlic Salt
- 2 packages dry yeast (or 4 1/2 tsp)
- 1 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/4 cup butter
- 2 tbsp Italian seasonings
- 6-10 cloves crushes garlic
- 2 tbsp garlic powder
For the topping:
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 tbsp italian seasonings
- 1 tbsp garlic
- 1/4 tsp salt
Combine 6 cups flour, sugar, garlic salt and dry yeast together. Mix to let loose any lumps.
Meanwhile, in a medium sauce pan combine water, milk, butter, seasonings, garlic and garlic powder to a boil, but stirring during.
Once hot, pour into flour mix.
It should look like this, or when you touch it it shouldn't stick to your finger.
Place in a warm area for an hour to let rise.
An hour later it should look like this!
Split you ball in half, because this recipe makes two loaves.
Form an oval and make 2 slices the longer way and 3 the shorter way.
Place in a well greased loaf pan and bake for 30 min on 400.
This is about how it should look. Tasty looking right?
Well you're not done yet!
Melt your butter and mix in the rest of the ingredients for the topping. With a grilling brush, pastry brush or a spoon (brushes work better though) spread your butter mix on both loaves. I've even added in some Parmesan if you want a little cheesy flavor!
