hot dog buns
butter, or as needed
garlic powder, or to taste
LOL...I always use this recipe....hotdog bread or hamburger bread as they call it... when my grandchildren come over. They love taking turns toasting their own garlic bread in the toaster oven....and adding their own special
ingredients....we fix garlic seasoning in butter with onion flakes, parsley flakes, garlic flakes, and organio. Spreading with different cheeses each one has their own little bowl. And to cut down on clean up we use clean bathroom drinking cups or styrofoam coffee cups. They LOVE it. Its a SPECIAL treat at MAW MAW's HOUSE. Grandmothers take time to make memories with your grandchildren...It may not be top notch but who care with grandchildren around....they come first.
I do agree, it's good for an extreme emergency. But, contrary to your comment: YES, I really did note the difference!
LOL, I thought I was the only one who did this. I've used hamburger buns as well. I use garlic bread sprinkle instead of garlic powder and also sprinkle a little italian seasoning or oregano on top and parmesan cheese. The parmesan takes on a wonderful flavor when it gets toasted. Not quite the same as french bread, sourdough, or italian bread but much much better than garlic toast made with sandwich bread.
My hubby and I have been doing this for years. He loves hotdogs and so I seem to always have left over buns that are ready to go stale. I've even put them into the regular toaster, spread margarine, sprinkled garlic powder and italian seasoning and just eat it alone. (Snack time!)You get the five stars cuz your right, this is totally "emergency" garlic bread. Thanks for sharing!!
I gave this a 5 star because it is exactly what it is..."emergency garlic bread" that tastes great! I actually have done this before and the recipe here was a delightful reminder. You can put all your favorite toppings and with good results.
I noticed the difference too, although not drastically enough to cut down the score so badly. Still pretty decent stuff, and definitely easy. I tend to like cooking things like this until barely "golden" but this seemed to work better cooking a bit beyond that, though burns easily. I also tried throwing them in the toaster oven on "toast" for just a short time before broiling, which gave a bit more crispiness to the bottom sides, which helped since hot dogs buns are so much softer than French bread. I don't think I'd want to try to fool guests with these.
Ha! I've made this several times before I even knew this was a "recipe" on here. I also add parmesan cheese and italian seasoning. Yum!
I love that the domestic arts are still alive and well! My mom taught me this trick to use left over hot dog buns. I use it to this day. Sometimes I'll sprinkle them with left over shredded cheeses too.
