    • Heat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark .

    • Mix the garlic into the softened butter with the parsley.

    Top tip for making Garlic bread

    You can make this butter a few days in advance, wrap it tightly in cling film until needed. It can also be frozen, but don’t store for more than 1 month as garlic can develop a stronger flavour if kept for too long
