Make-Ahead Garlic Toast

Recipe by  

"I love this because I always have leftover bread and it goes to waste most of the time. The best part is that you can pull out as many pieces as you want and bake them straight from the freezer!"

This surprized me that it actually worked. I had serious doubts but it was an incredible lifesaver for two reasons--I was able to salvage day old bread and make garlic bread ahead of time so that I could just throw it in the oven right as I needed it. I did up the garlic powder but other than that I kept the recipe the same. GREAT recipe.

I love this recipe because I always have left over bread. The garlic toast was mild tasting. For a little more zip add garic salt to taste.

Awesome idea that works great for later when you are short on time. It's so convenient to have it waiting in the freezer! The recipe is good but to bring it to 5 stars, double the amount of garlic.

I think this tasted a lot better than the pre-made kind from a box. It was very easy to make and great to have on hand.

Much better than buying it frozen from the grocery store. I've made it with garlic powder as well as with roasted garlic (recipe from this site as well). Was great both ways. :)

This recipe is so convenient and tasty! The ONLY thing I changed was the garlic powder. I crushed real garlic (about 2 Tbsp, as I ? garlic) in my mortar (which I use often for Puerto Rican recipes). Other than that, I loved it and my 4 yr old especially who is crazy about garlic bread! Thank you for the recipe! :-)

Perfect recipe, perfect balance of ingredients! I needed the garlic bread right away for dinner, so I didn't freeze it and it turned out great!! will freeze in the future as I know frozen garlic bread bakes well :)
