The Ingredient You Should Be Using For Better Garlic Bread
By WENDY LEIGH
From culinary influencers to famous chefs and everyday cooks, the battle for better garlic bread rages on. Crunchy or chewy, extra buttery or just barely coated, pressed vs powdered garlic — it's all on the table when creating the ultimate garlic bread recipe.
Though seemingly incompatible with standard garlic bread ingredients, hot sauce adds a winning kick to the classic side dish, and before assuming that adding hot sauce to garlic bread is not your thing, you may want to consider how the ingredients and technique work together.
Other ingredients incorporated in the garlic bread — including butter, garlic, parmesan, parsley leaves, and scallions — absorb and complement the hot sauce well, balancing one another so the hot sauce adds a nice punch, rather than overwhelming the dish.
