This is my favourite garlic bread, the light fluffy Ciabatta dripping with real butter all flavoured with fresh garlic. I have on many occasions tried to substitute the butter with margarine and for me it doesn't work. I do have some shortcuts, that I would like to pass on to you, I always keep my butter at room temperature, I like to use fresh chopped garlic (which can be prepared in advance and frozen in batches) and when not homemade, I use shop bought vacuum packed Ciabatta!
100g butter, softened
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 tbsp dried parsley
With a fork, mash the butter, garlic and parsley in a small bowl.
