Freezer Garlic Bread

This is one of my standard freezer cooking recipes, you can use french bread, texas toast, homemade bread or whatever you like!


Freezer Garlic Toast

 Butter or margarine, softened 2 sticks
Olive oil or vegetable oil 1/2 C.
 Garlic powder 1/4 C.
 Italian seasoning 1/4 C.
Parmesan cheese, optional 1 C.
 Italian bread, sliced 1” thick 2 loaves

Assembly Directions: In a medium size bowl, mix together the butter, oil, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning with a spoon. Add Parmesan cheese, if desired. You want the mixture to be a nice spreadable consistency. If it’s too thick, add more oil… maybe a tablespoon at a time, until the mixture is spreadable. Spread both sides of the bread slices with the mixture and put them on a cookie sheet.

Freezing Directions: Put the cookie sheet of bread slices in the freezer. When they’re frozen, package the slices in a gallon freezer bag. Seal, label and freeze.

 Serving Directions: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Put the needed number of garlic toast slices on a cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes. For even toasting, turn the pieces halfway through the baking time.

Comments: Add more or less garlic powder based on your personal taste. Same with the Italian seasoning. This is a tasty and economical alternative to the expensive garlic toast you buy in the freezer section at your local grocery store.
