Garlic Slathered Stretch Bread......
Its no secret that I'm a huge fan of Marcy Goldman. I love, love, love her Treasury of Jewish Holiday Baking book and I'm equally in love with her latest book " A Passion for Baking".
My friend Di also has this book and she reccomended this Garlic Slathered Stretch Bread. Once I read the recipe, I knew Robin would love this. She is always begging me to make " cheesy garlic bread" and this recipe is exactly that times 10. You start by making a simple flatbread dough. I love that the majority of Marcy's recipes use Bread flour. I think it gives great texture and chew. I made the dough in the KA using the hook and it came together in a snap. While its rising, you make a spread with mayo, garlic( I reduced the cloves to 4 instead of 6 and it was very garlicky) parmesean, some italian seasoning and evoo. This is spread over the bread with mozzarella. Once the second shorter rise is complete, its a short bake in the oven. As you can see, 4 cups of flour made a huge amount of bread. I have a big catering job coming up and I plan on serving this with their lasagna.
If enough people want the recipe, I can ask Marcy if I can post it. Or, you can always go buy the book. If you're like me, you'll want to bake every single recipe in it.
