Garlic Dogs

  • In a small bowl, combine the softened butter, garlic, parsley and lemon juice well then set aside.
  • Slice the ends off the French loaf, then cut in half and each half in half again (so you have 4 equally sized pieces).
  • Using the back of a wooden spoon, make a hole down the middle of each piece (removing the excess bread).
  • Place the frankfurters end to end inside the bread and place on a baking sheet.
  • Brush the top of the bread generously with the butter mixture and bake for 20 minutes until golden.
  • Remove from the oven and serve warm with the soup.
