I often get requests to post simple, easy, quick recipes and the ones made with less ingredients. This garlic bread recipe falls in this category of recipes. If you live alone or live in a hostel or have less time for cooking, then you can rustle up this recipe as a quick bite snack.

Usually I make garlic bread as an accompaniment to soups or as a starter. But they equally taste good with tea or coffee. I have also shared the recipe of Cheese garlic bread which is also an easy recipe.

The aroma of garlic stands out in the recipe. so if you are sensitive to strong pungent aromas, then I suggest to slightly saute the crushed garlic before adding to butter.

Homemade breads are always good, but if using bakery or store brought bread, then use good quality fresh bread. You can use wheat bread or multi grain bread or even brown bread or whole wheat sandwich bread or any bread of your choice.

How to make garlic bread toast on pan

1. Slice the loaf of bread in slices having 0.75 inches width.
