I love Garlic Bread....the smell, taste, everything about it just screams comfort food to me!
This recipe is awesome, because you can make it ahead of time, and pull it out of the freezer whenever you need it! You can make this entire batch, you can cut it in half to make a smaller amount...whatever you want!
But I hope you give it a try!!
2 sticks butter, room temperature
2 teaspoons dried parsley
1 tablespoon garlic powder
dash of salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup parmesan cheese, optional
Slices of bread
In a small bowl, mix together butter, parsley, garlic powder, salt and pepper, and Parmesan cheese, if desired.
I use roughly one teaspoon of the mixture per slice of bread.
Spread evenly, and place slices, butter side up, on a baking sheet.
Place baking sheet in the freezer for 30-60 minutes, or until butter is firm.
Place bread in an airtight container or zip-lock bad and keep frozen until ready to use.
Lay frozen slices, butter side up on a baking sheet.
Bake at 375 degrees for 5-6 minutes, or until light golden brown and edges of the bread are lightly toasted (if baking unfrozen slices, you may need bake 1-2 minutes less)
