Make Ahead Garlic Bread

April 13, 2009

I have a confession to make.
I am addicted to simple carbs.
This means I could conceivably consume a year's worth of carbs in one meal when pairing great pasta and a loaf of garlic bread. This not only leads to perpetual chubbiness, but also a wide-spread family panic if pasta is made for dinner and no garlic bread is on hand. Hence, this simple recipe.


1 loaf French bread
8 Tbsp butter, room temp.
2 cloves (or 2 tsp.) minced garlic
1/2 c. grated Parmesan cheese
2 tbs dried Italian Seasoning (optional)

To Prepare:
- Slice bread lengthwise.
- In a medium bowl, combine the butter, Italian seasoning and garlic. Mix well.
- Spread each cut side of the bread with the butter mixture.
- Sprinkle 1/4 c. Parmesan cheese over each sides of the bread. Put loaf back together, butter sides together.
- Wrap loaf in tin foil. Label and freeze for up to one month.

To Serve:
- Loosen the foil and bake at 400* for 15 minutes.
- Open up the bread so the cut sides are exposed and cook for approximately 15 more minutes.
- Slice and serve.

Single Servings:
If cooking for one or two, slice loaf into 1 inch slices instead of lengthwise. Add butter mixture to each slice and place sheets of wax paper between slices before freezing. Remove just enough servings and bake, butter side up, on baking sheet at 400* for 5-7 minutes.

Thank you so much for posting this. I made a recipe I found on another site and I just didn't like it, but I am going to have to try this.

About This Blog

A new recipe will be posted each Monday and, of course, you can always search the archives by category.

The Goal of this blog is not just to give you my recipes, but to teach you which ingredients freeze well, which don't, methods and tips to help you freeze your own recipes...because who knows better what your family likes than you?

Do you only cook organic? Great! Are you a vegetarian? No problem! Make what works for you and save time, money and (let's be honest...stress) while doing it.

The Freeze Happy philosophy has made my life better and I'm pretty sure it can improve yours too.
