Garlic bread… everyone loves garlic bread. It’s the best snack ever. (Other than the icky effects on your breath…) It’s so easy and quick to throw together, and everyone always has all the ingredients lying around… it’s just the perfect dish! I like to put a little cheese on mine, how do you like yours?
your favourite type of bread (preferably whole wheat as it’s better for you!)
2 tbs butter (softened)
2 cloves garlic (crushed)
cracked ground pepper to taste
cheddar cheese (optional)
a pinch of thyme
Preheat oven to 250 F.
Slice your bread to your desired thickness. Soften the butter in a microwave, crush your cloves of garlic into the butter and mix it around to create a paste. Brush the paste onto your slices of bread. Layer the cheese on top of the butter mixture and top with a sprinkle of thyme. Drizzle a little olive oil over the pieces of bread and put it in the oven for 5 minutes. (Note: You can also grill the garlic bread and it’s wonderful.)
This is just a nice and simple garlic bread recipe, you can always add spices and other herbs to spice it up! Also, using whole wheat bread makes this a little less indulgent… at least that’s what I tell myself!
