When you just need a taste, grill up a few servings of garlic bread. Here's how.
Prep Time 5minutes
Cook Time 3minutes
Total Time 8minutes
Carbs (g): 38
2slicesFrench bread (OR Italian bread OR hamburger buns OR hot dog buns OR sub rolls OR slices of bread)
2tablespoonbutter (OR margarine per slice — OR olive oil or canola oil)
2teaspoongarlic powder (OR onion powder OR ground dill OR Italian seasoning, to taste)
Heat dry skillet over medium-high heat while preparing bread.
If using butter or margarine, mix butter and chosen spice in a small cup (if using oil, see instructions in Notes, below).
Spread one side of each slice of bread with the mixture.
When skillet is hot, place as many pieces of bread in the pan as will fit — butter side down.
As they cook, spread more butter and spice on the top side.
When the bottom is nice and golden (as in the photo, similar to a grilled cheese sandwich), flip the bread over.
Cook until the second side is also golden.
Remove from pan.
If desired, cut into two or three pieces to make “bread sticks.”
Repeat if needed until desired amount has been prepared.
If using oil, brush one side of each slice of bread with oil — don’t soak the bread, but make sure it’s covered. Sprinkle seasonings over the oil, to taste. Grill as described in the instructions, substituting oil and seasonings for the butter/spice mix.If using buns, I often only grill the cut side.
