This recipe is extremely simple and delicious. It is one of my favorite recipes to make as an appetizer before dinner, or alongside a soup or pasta dish.
The recipe is as follows:
PREP TIME: 5 mins
BAKE TIME: 3 mins
TOTAL TIME: 8 mins
MAKES: Approx. 1 loaf of bread
- 4 cloves garlic, crushed
- 2 tbsp butter
- 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 loaf of bread, sliced
- 3 tbsp parmesan cheese, optional
- Fresh parsley, chopped
Combine garlic, butter, and oil in a microwave safe dish or in a small saucepan. Heat garlic and butter and oil in microwave for 45 seconds or in a small pot over moderate-low heat for 3 minutes.
Lay bread slices on a tray, and toast under broiler. Remove when they are toasted golden brown in color. Brush bread with garlic oil. Sprinkle with cheese, if using, and parsley. If you added cheese, return to broiler and brown 30 seconds.
