- 6 large cloves garlic, chopped
- 1/4 cup fresh parsley
- 2 tablespoons fresh oregano leaves
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1/2 cup good olive oil
- 1 large ciabatta bread
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place the garlic, parsley, oregano, salt, and pepper in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade and process until finely minced. Heat the olive oil in a medium saute pan over low heat. Add the garlic and herb mixture and cook for 3 minutes, until the garlic is tender but now browned. Remove from the heat and set aside.
Cut the ciabatta in half horizontally, running a serrated knife parallel to the board. Spoon the garlic mixture onto the bottom half and spread the butter on the top half and place together.
Wrap the bread in aluminum foil and place on a sheet pan. Bake for 5 minutes, then unwrap and discard the foil. Bake for another 5 minutes. Slice crosswise and serve warm.
