The Best Bread
This bread is so delicious you will never believe that it is made with just bread and butter- yes, it's alot of butter but so incredibly good. The key is to broil until the butter has browned.
|1 loaf||french bread, split lengthwise|
|2 sticks||regular (salted) butter, softened|
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Spread one stick of softened butter on each half of the loaf.
Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes, or until butter is melted and starting to soak into the bread.
Crank on broiler and broil bread for 3 to 5 minutes, watching the whole time. Remove when butter has started to brown and blacken. Don't under-broil it! The flavor really kicks in when the butter's color changes.
Slice into strips and serve immediately.
