Italian Garlic Bread with Red Wine




Yield 4 people


Herbs (Optional but highly suggested to use if you have them)


  1. Preheat the oven to at least 375 degrees Farenheit (190 Celcius)

Creating the Mixture

  1. Peel and crush the garlic into a small mixing bowl
  2. Add the oil to the garlic and mix well together
  3. Add any herbs to the mixing bowl that you'd like to have and mix well
  4. Once the herbs are in, add the red wine to the mixture and stir
  5. Finally, add salt and pepper to the mixture

Add Mixture to Bread

  1. Lay the bread slices on a baking pan
  2. Apply the mixture evenly to all pieces of bread, making sure not to let any go to waste!
  3. Once applied, put the bread in the oven for at least 12 minutes or until golden brown


1) The fresher the herbs, the more fragrant and pungent the end-taste will be!

2) If you'd like to make a buttery spread instead, swap the olive oil for butter. Everything else stays the same
