Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

Step 2

Slice the French baguette diagonally into 1-inch thick slices, without cutting all the way through. This will create the appearance of Frankenstein's "stitched" neck bolts.

Step 3

In a small mixing bowl, combine the softened butter, minced garlic, chopped parsley, dried basil, dried oregano, salt, and black pepper. Mix well until all the ingredients are thoroughly incorporated.

Step 4

Optional: If desired, add a few drops of green food coloring to the butter mixture and mix until the desired shade of green is achieved, representing Frankenstein's complexion.

Step 5

Gently spread the garlic butter mixture between the slices of the baguette, making sure to coat both sides of each slice.

Step 6

Place the prepared baguette onto a baking sheet or a piece of aluminum foil.

Step 7

Optional: For an extra Frankenstein-inspired touch, sprinkle black sesame seeds on top of the bread to resemble the monster's "hair."

Step 8

Bake the garlic bread in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the bread is crispy on the outside and the butter has melted and infused with the flavors.

Step 9

Remove the bread from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes.

Step 10

Serve the Frankenstein's Garlic Bread warm. Pull apart the slices, revealing the buttery garlic-infused insides and the distinctive "stitched" appearance.
