5 Ways You Enjoy French Bread

Hubby and I both love garlic bread, though he can’t eat it anymore because it’s too hard for him, even dunked in soup.
When we used to treat ourselves to a pizza, garlic bread was always included, but it never survived getting out of the car park as we used to eat it as soon as we got back to the car. Always best hot!

French sticks used to be the norm on a Saturday when I was a child and would be the one day of the week Mum didn’t cook. She would instead do ‘torpedos’ for tea by cutting the French stick in three length ways and filling it with ham, cheese and tomatoes!

I often have a freshly cooked baguette from the local supermarket and had one today with bacon and mushrooms.

I don’t know if cheese rolls are counted as French bread, but these became very popular years ago and are nice with burgers or ham, especially if still warm.

Croissants have also become popular here in the UK and I prefer mine crisp and flaky rather than warm and spongy. I’m not too keen on the chocolate ones though which we were greeted with when we went to Cherbourg on the ferry with the bank for a trip to the Hypermarket.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    French bread for garlic bread?! We always use the Italian loaf… But I imagine it would be equally good. I like to eat mine just as it is – and dunked in a flavorful soup or stew. I made a dessert where the loaf was sliced thinly but not all the way through and the spaces were filled with cream cheese, ricotta, and blueberries and then wrapped in aluminum foil and baked for 15 minutes to make it hot! Wow was that ever tasty.

    I don’t like garlic bread, maily because I don’t like garlic on anything! The trouble is, there’s garlic in most things, so I’m okay if I don’t look at the labels and can’t taste it!
