Craving garlic bread but don’t have a baguette handy? Regular bread will do well in a pinch. This quick and tasty garlic bread or toast can be prepped well ahead of serving time or frozen. Just toss freshly grated cheese, garlic, some herbs and voila!

Ingredients

1. 4 cloves garlic, minced or crushed

2. 1/2 cup or 2 tablespoons salted butter, softened

3. 1 loaf baguette or French bread or any crusty bread, cut lengthwise and split

4. 1/2 teaspoon salt

6. 1 teaspoon seasoning

7. 2 tablespoons olive oil

8. 1/2 cup or 3 tablespoons shredded/ grated cheese – parmesan or mozzarella

Instructions

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line a large baking sheet with foil.

Step 2: In a small bowl, add softened butter with minced garlic, salt, garlic powder, seasoning, and grated cheese. Give it all a mix until well combined for the spread.

Step 3: Combine garlic, butter and oil in a small saucepan. Heat it in the microwave for a minute or over moderate-low flame for approximately 3 minutes.

Step 4: Slice cut a French bread loaf lengthwise and place on top of a baking sheet.
