We’ve been talking about fats and oils this week over at Good. Cheap. Eats as we continue to Build a Frugal Pantry. So, it only seems appropriate (and sane for my dual-blogging mind) that we feature fats and oils in this week’s Ultimate Recipe Swap. Personally, I am quite partial to butter. Not as much as some people I know. But, I do love it.
And butter is the star in one of the easiest side dishes to make: Garlic Bread.
During the last Freezer Cooking Days I made several loaves of Garlic Bread to freeze. It was so nice to place a foil-wrapped loaf in the oven with the rest of our dinner last night. Clean-up was non-existent! I will be doing this a lot this summer.
Recipe: Easy Make Ahead Garlic Bread
- 1 large loaf bread, sliced lengthwise
- 1 stick or 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
- In small mixing bowl, combine butter, garlic and parsley flakes. Spread in thick layer over bread. Put two halves back together and wrap with foil. At this point you can store it in the freezer for later use. I thawed mine overnight in the freezer before baking.
- Bake, thawed, 25 minutes at 375 °. If frozen, add 10-15 minutes to your baking time. Right before serving, you can unwrap the foil and broil the bread briefly to crisp the top.
