Homemade Garlic Bread – is perfect side dish for any kind of meat. Also has a very powerful flavor so it can be eaten alone as well but I prefer eating it as a side dish. It is really easy to make and works very well with different dipping sauces. The smell of the freshly baked garlic bread is incredible and the flavour is perfect. It is one of my top recommendations for a side dish for meats.
