You really don’t need a season change to enjoy garlic bread. It’s buttery, garlicky, cozy and delicious… and your house is going to pick up the aroma of the Italian restaurant. These are toasty and a bit crunchy on the outside and so soft on the inside. Perfection!
You can eat it with your favorite Italian pasta, or just slice it into long strips and dip in the marinara sauce. It’s perfect for sports parties such as basketball or football gatherings with your family and friends or perhaps makes it for your Sunday dinner.
My family loves these so much, that I cannot even express it, but what’s not to love, right?! It’s comfort food, a kick-ass side that you just have to love.
I hope you make these, and if you do, make sure to tag me on Instagram @sandraseasycooking #sandraseasycooking or Twitter @secooking #secooking
SKILLET TOASTED GARLIC BREAD
Super Easy and delicious Skillet Toasted Garlic Bread
- 1 stick unsalted butter softened/room temperature
- 2 tsp. Dried parsley
- 1 Tbsp. Garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp. Kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp. Chili Flakes
- 1 loaf of Texas Toast
If the bread is not sliced, then slice it into about 1 inch thick slices. You want a bread to have a nice bite to it.
In a small mixing bowl, mix together the softened butter, parsley, garlic, salt and chili flakes until smooth.
Lightly spread the butter mixture on one side of all the bread.
Heat a well-seasoned cast-iron skillet over medium heat and add toast.
While it is toasting on one side, lightly spread the butter mixture on the other side.
Flip the toast after about 2 minutes or until it is golden brown, and then toast the other side.
You may serve it with parmesan cheese and marinara sauce, with pasta or salad.
Bake them in the oven:
Preheat oven to 375 F. Butter both sides and place on a baking pan. Bake 10 minutes or until golden brown. Turn the broiler on high and bake for 30-40 seconds more to get ultimate crunch.
I garnished these with some Za'atar, and I loved it. If you have any just sprinkle on top before serving, but you can sprinkle with parmesan cheese too. If you going to use cheese, skip on the salt. Cheese is salty enough, or just use a small pinch if you like it more savory.
