Bite Sized Dangerous Garlic Bread

The other day, I had a bit of a cooking disaster (let's just say I made something with spinach that did NOT turn out well, but that required bread for dipping).  So, I had half of a baguette left over.  I turned to my trusty DIY Heirloom Cookbook and found my old recipe for garlic bread.  I fell in love with it all over again!  It is DANGEROUS, because you can pop a piece in your mouth and nobody will be the wiser!

It's one of those recipes where you can pretend like you're on a cooking show, and not measure the ingredients, and it will still turn out great.
Bite Sized Dangerous Garlic Bread Recipe

  • One skinny baguette (I got mine from Trader Joe's)
  • 5-6 heaping tablespoons of spreadable margarine (Like "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter")
  • 1-2 teaspoons of minced garlic (depending on your preference)
  • A few shakes of Italian seasoning, or Parsley or Oregano or Basil (whatever you have around works!)
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Preheat to 350 degrees
  • Cover a baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray
  • Slice your baguette into thin pieces and arrange on sheet
  • In a microwavable bowl, combine margarine, garlic and seasonings.  
  • Microwave for 30 seconds or until margarine is melted
  • Using a spoon or a brush, apply mixture to each piece of bread.  Get them nice and soaked!
  • Sprinkle parmesan cheese all over. 
  • Bake for about 15-20 minutes, or until cheese has melted and bread starts to look crispy.  Enjoy!
  • Tip:  If you have a heavy hand when applying mixture and run out, don't worry!  Just whip up a new margarine / garlic / seasoning batch and keep going!
