How To Make Garlic Bread With Garlic Powder?

Garlic Bread

Garlic Bread

Garlic bread is a tasty side dish, enjoyed by children and adults alike. While many people may use fresh garlic to make garlic bread, garlic powder can also be used to make a delicious garlic bread. When made correctly, garlic bread is a side dish that any family will love and may be used to complement a wide array of meals, including pasta and pizza dishes.

Why Use Garlic Powder Instead Of Fresh Garlic?

When making garlic bread, many people choose to make their bread by simply spreading a garlic butter or similar mixture on their toast. Garlic powder can be used to make this garlic butter, and may actually be more economical for two reasons. The first reason is cost. Purchasing a container of garlic powder that will last for months is a more budget savvy option than continuing to purchase fresh garlic. Many cooks will find that garlic powder is an easier and cheaper option than fresh garlic. The second reason to use garlic powder is convenience. Simply shaking some garlic powder into melted butter is a very simple way of making garlic butter, without the cutting or chopping that fresh garlic requires.

3. Mix together the 1 1/2 tablespoons of garlic powder, 1 tablespoon of dried parsley, and the melted butter in a medium-sized bowl. Spread the mixture liberally over both halves of the cut loaf. Keep in mind that the parsley is optional, and if the cook so prefers may be left out of the mixture or substituted for a bit of oregano or dash of pepper.

4. Place both halves on a baking sheet and allow them to bake for 7 – 10 minutes.

5. Once baked, Parmesan cheese may be added to one half or both halves of the bread.

6. Set the oven to broil and allow the bread to cook for an additional 3 – 4 minutes. The bread should look crispy, but not burnt, around the edges and the cheese should appear to be bubbling. Once the bread is thoroughly toasted, cut the bread into slices and serve while it is still warm.

Cheesy Garlic Bread Recipe:

Ingredients: 1 large loaf of Italian or French Bread
1 stick of butter (softened)
1 1/2 tablespoons of garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon of dried parsley
1/4 tablespoon of dried oregano
1 8-ounce bag of shredded mozzarella cheese

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Slice the loaf of bread lengthwise.

2. In a medium-sized bowl, mix 1 1/2 tablespoons of garlic powder, 1 tablespoon of parsley, 1/2 teaspoon of oregano, and softened butter. Spread the mixture liberally across the two halves of the chosen bread. (It is not necessary to use the parsley and/or oregano. If preferred, one or both of these ingredients may be left out of the mixture, this will simply limit the different tastes of the bread.)

3. On a baking sheet, bake the bread for 7 minutes.

4. Liberally spread the mozzarella cheese on top of the bread. Then set the oven to broil and place the bread back in the over for an additional 3 – 4 minutes. The cheese should be a bubbly, light golden brown and the edges of the bread should appear crispy, without appearing burnt.

5. Simply slice the bread into suitable servings and serve the bread while it is still warm.
