Garlic Bread -Three Easy Ways

This recipe must be as old as the hills.  I see people buying the prepared garlic bread in the store.  Looking at it, it doesn’t look fresh, it doesn’t look appetizing and it costs a fortune compared to what it would if you made it at home.  There are things that I would buy prepared and things that I would not.  Garlic bread falls under the would not.  Once you make this recipe you won’t buy the ready made stuff again.  There hasn’t been a time when I have made this that someone hasn’t remarked on how good it is.  Just recently a friend of my son’s was eating it and part way through he said “I can’t stop eating this, it’s delicious!”  I replied “Really?  Well thank you.”  It is because of that remark that this recipe is being posted.  It just made me realize there are people out there that don’t know how to prepare it and obviously haven’t had it.

Normally I make this recipe with just regular sliced bread.  It can be any kind.  Rye, white, whole wheat, multigrain, whatever floats your boat.  To post it I decided to jazz it up a bit but it is the same basic recipe for all the garlic breads made.

Garlic Bread In 3 Easy Ways 005As you can see I decided to use 3 different breads.  An Italian loaf, a Ciabatta stick and a Kiaser bun.  Always keep in mind that 99% of the time I use just plain sliced bread.

Garlic Bread In 3 Easy Ways 010 As much or as little as you want.

Garlic Bread In 3 Easy Ways 011Spread each piece of bread with softened butter.  I just keep the butter at room temperature.  Again, as much or as little as you want.  Though the first time you make it lean on the much side.  As they say, everything tastes better with butter.

Garlic Bread In 3 Easy Ways 015Take some fresh garlic cloves, peel them then rub them along the bread, scrubbing really well.  You will be able to see that the garlic will start to shrink.

Garlic Bread In 3 Easy Ways 016Then with some olive oil top each side.  Again the amount is really up to you.  Slice and it’s ready for a meal.

Garlic Bread In 3 Easy Ways 011As you can see the kaiser bun has been prepared exactly the same as the Italian loaf.  Sprinkled with granulated garlic and topped with butter.

Garlic Bread In 3 Easy Ways 019Place the 2 sides together onto foil, wrap and put into a 350 degree oven for 40-45 minutes.  This is exactly how I make the sliced bread.  When putting them together, think of it as making a garlic sandwich. After each slice has been sprinkled with garlic and buttered, place the two pieces together.  If you have 8 pieces, that’s 4 sandwiches. Start to stack them together with the buttered sides facing each other.  Wrap in foil and place into a 350 degrees oven until all the butter has been melted.  I also will turn the parcel in the oven. From one flat surface to the other.
