Pressed for time? Don't have an oven? Want just a slice or two of garlic bread? Here's a quick and easy way to make garlic bread.
- 1 to 4 slices of rustic bread
- A drizzle of extra virgin olive oil for each slice
- One large fresh garlic clove
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.
