You can salvage your stale bread! Aside from making croutons, this is another great way to use it up…and it can be done very, very easily if you don’t have much time.
Here’s what you need for Garlic Bread
butter OR olive oil – your preference (if using butter, it’s better if it’s a little soft)
fresh garlic (chopped) OR jarred crushed garlic (which you can get at, believe it or not, Trader Joe’s!)
salt and pepper
Go nuts and throw some mozzarella on top, if you like…after all, cheese makes everything better 🙂
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Cut the bread lengthwise and spread the butter on both sides, followed by the garlic and seasonings.
Close the bread, wrap in foil and place on a baking sheet. Bake for about 15 minutes (depending on the size of the loaf).
