  • 5 garlic cloves
  • 3/4 stick unsalted butter
  • 1 cup packed parsley sprigs
  • 1 (24-inch) baguette
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • With motor running, drop garlic cloves into food processor and run until garlic is finely chopped.
  • Cook garlic in butter with 1/4 tsp each of salt and pepper in a small heavy saucepan over medium heat, stirring, until pale golden, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Pulse parsley in food processor until finely chopped, then stir into butter.
  • Cut baguette crosswise at 1-inch intervals, not slicing all the way through. Put bread on a large sheet of foil, then spoon about 1 tsp butter into each cut. Wrap foil tightly around bread and bake until heated through, about 10 minutes.
