Homemade Garlic Bread is very simple, tastes delightful. It only takes 10 mins max to prepare and cook, it’s great to put on just as your dishing up.
I know what you’re thinking – seriously? You need a post on how to make garlic bread? Well not exactly.
This is a post on how to make gourmet cheesy garlic bread in bulk so you always have some on hand.
My family are nuts for a piece of garlic bread with our meals, this way- you can just take out as many ‘slices’ as you need, whack them under a hot griller – and you have toasted cheesy garlic bread in about 5 minutes flat.
Great to put on just as your dishing up your meal – and it makes your dinners stretch that little bit further – for less!
In a small bowl mix together the butter, garlic and parmesan cheese until well combined.
Take the Turkish breads out of their packets and slice into 1.5cm slices – a typical loaf should get you about 10 – 12 slices (I used the Turkish bread from Aldi – delicious and cheap!).
Lay the slices on bread on their side and using a scraper, ‘butter’ one side of the bread making sure you go right to the ends.
Once the mixture is totally used up (don’t be frightened to smother it on!) – now it’s time to prepare them for freezing.
Lay a sheet of baking paper on the bottom of the container, layer the bread on the bottom – as close as you can together without ‘squashing’ the loaf.
Once the bottom layer is full, add a sheet of baking paper on top. Don’t worry about the butter sticking to the paper, once its frozen it is easy to remove.
Keep layering the garlic bread until you get right to the top of the container – again place baking paper on top – and place the lid on to seal.
Freeze for up to two months.
When you need a slice of garlic bread, just take out what you need – and re-seal.
The average loaf of garlic bread costs around the $3.00 mark. This will make the equivalent to four loaves for about $4.50 – plus there is zero waste!
