Seven Garlics Bread

Seven Garlics Bread

I set out the make the most garlicky garlic bread possible, and decided if I added seven types of garlics to the bread it would be enough to put it into garlic overdrive! Pickled garlic, roasted garlic, raw garlic, garlic powder, black garlic, and toom garlic spread are the toppings. That is only 6 garlics you might be saying. Well guess what, the bread is garlic sourdough!

The inspiration for this recipe

I came up with this idea when I was making some janky garlic bread to go on the side with pasta. It was just slices of bread with some butter and garlic powder. Then I added a little raw garlic and thought to myself how well raw garlic and garlic powder compliment each other. It then made me wonder how other types of garlic could all sing together in harmony, so I started trying to think how many types of garlics I could get into bread.

Make the quick pickled garlic

I added some garlic cloves to a jar and then added vinegar, water, salt, and sugar. You could do more flavors if you wanted. You could also buy pickled garlic but I don’t see it very often at the store.

The seven types of garlics for this bread

To roast the garlic, just cut off the top so all the cloves are exposed, then drizzle on some oil and salt. Wrap it in foil and bake for an hour. I usually buy toum, but you can make your own and this is a great and easy recipe. I bought the black garlic here.

Make the seven garlics butter

Melt the butter and mix in all the garlics. I chopped the raw and pickled garlic, mashed up the black and roasted garlic, and then just added the toum and the powder. Mash it all up together! The more you mash, the more the seven garlics will melt right into the bread!

Soak the bread in the garlic butter

The first time I tried this recipe I put the butter on top of the bread and it was good but needed more. The next time I made it, I was thinking of when you make french toast and soak the toast in egg. So I soaked it in butter instead!
