Easiest Ever Garlic Bread

  • Prep: 3 minutes


  • 1 to 4 slices of rustic bread

1 Toast one or two slices of bread.

2 Drizzle or brush a little olive oil over one side of the toasted bread.

3 Cut a garlic clove (peel still on) in half, on the diagonal. Gently rub the cut side of the garlic clove over the olive oil-brushed toasted bread.

Alternatively, you can brush the toast with the garlic first, and then drizzle with olive oil or spread with butter. Both ways work.

Tip: If you have leftover slices of garlic bread, cut them up into squares for croutons. Store in an airtight bag or jar at room temp for a day or two. You can also process them in a blender or food processor for garlicky breadcrumbs.
