Four Leaf Clover-Kissed Garlic Bread

I love making green food for St. Patty’s day, but I don’t like using food coloring. This garlic bread is perfect because it’s naturally green, courtesy of loads of basil and parsley. The bread is perfect with pasta — for a totally green meal pair it with this mac ‘n cheese from Weelicious!

Back to the bread…make it, and according to my kiddos, you’re guaranteed to spot a leprechaun in 24 hours. Now how can you resist?

Four Leaf Clover-Kissed Garlic Herb Bread

Four Leaf Clover-Kissed Garlic Herb Bread


2 ounces butter

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 cup fresh basil leaves

1/3 cup parsley

2 cloves garlic

1 whole green onion

2 pinches salt (to taste)

1 pinch pepper (to taste)

1 loaf ciabatta or french bread

1 1/2 cup grated parmesan


Combine all the ingredients except the bread and cheese in a food processor, and process until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.

Cut open the loaf of bread and spread both halves with the herb butter. Put the halves together and wrap in aluminum foil. Bake for in a 400ºF oven for 10 minutes.

Remove the bread, separate the halves and load them up with Parmesan cheese. Return them to the oven and either crank up the heat to 500ºF or put them under the broiler. WATCH CLOSELY!

Cook until the cheese is melted, bubbly, and starting to get brown. Serve!
