I can’t believe I can’t find the post I wrote down on how to make Garlic Bread. So, here are two ways to make it.
GARLIC BREAD (QUICK)
One loaf of Italian or French Bread
Slice the bread lengthwise. Spread a thin layer of butter on the bread. Use enough butter as if you were going to eat the bread with just butter. Sprinkle on the garlic powder to taste. Not too much even if you love garlic. Remember its still just powder and this is the quick version. Toast bread under broiler (butter side up). Until golden brown. Slice and serve warm.
GARLIC BREAD (TRADITIONAL)
ONE LOAF ITALIAN BREAD
2 cloves garlic (minced)
1 stick butter
Mozzarella cheese (shredded) (Optional)
Slice bread lengthwise. Melt the butter in a small pot. Add the minced garlic to melted butter and cook over low heat for one minute. Brush or carefully spoon the melted butter and garlic across the bread evenly. Brown bread under broiler until golden brown. Serve warm.
Optional cheese version: After toasting bread, sprinkle cheese on top and return to broiler. Leave until just melted. Serve warm.
Now you have the long and the short version. I learned the long version in my high school cooking class from a fellow classmate of Italian descent, who by the way was appalled when I first suggested we use garlic powder to make garlic bread. That was the way I, a man of Irish decent learned from my sister growing up. Anyhow, the cheese thing I got from my sister in-law who is an amazing cook and baker!
