Hello everyone, today I have a new recipe for you, a so-called crowd pleaser: Garlic bread with garlic dip. The bread is sure to be the hit at the next party, because it doesn’t only look great, it's also fun to eat. And it will surely delight the old and the young with its fine garlic flavor. I created the recipe for the new Knorr garlic flakes. They match perfectly, because besides garlic they also contain spices like thyme, rosemary and marjoram. And just like the other spices of the new Knorr Switzerland* line, they are made from natural ingredients and without added salt.

This time I baked the bread myself, it’s a simple spelt bread baked in a cast iron pot - we like that very much. But you can also easily use a store bought bread for the recipe. The bread is cut crosswise, soaked in a mixture of garlic, spices and butter/margarine and filled with mozzarella. Then baked in the oven and the pulling and dipping can begin. I can promise you, the bread will surely be the hit as your next starter course or your party or the next bbq.

Don’t be too frugal with the filling, the bread is especially delicious when the garlic is really nice in every corner. And the mozzarella made from cashews melts very well and makes the bread extra fine. Everyone can pick and choose a piece of bread to their liking. A perfect side dish is a light salad and of course the garlic dip.

The fresh thyme gives the garlic bread a delicious flavor, but rosemary would also fit very well. The garlic bread and the dip are a great side dish for the summer and all your BBQ parties. It's sure to become an integral part of our BBQ repertoire, it's just irresistible. The garlic dip was so delicious with the bread. You can add a fresh garlic clove to it, so the dip is a little more intense and more spicy.

The bread was also very well received by our children, who of course thought it was great to pluck with their fingers and had a lot of fun eating with our guests! I'm sure your family will be just as excited!
