here is a very quick and easy way to make garlic toast when needed to accompany pasta, salads, soups or even just to have with tomatoes as an appetizer.
i simply slice a ciabatta loaf of bread and brush with melted butter with crushed garlic to taste. sprinkle the toast with parsley flakes or garlic and herb seasoning and bake for 10 to 15 minutes at 350 degrees.
the toast is tasty, crispy and has a wonderful flavor. any of these ingredients can be adjusted to taste. olive oil or margarine could be substituted for the butter. a variety of seasonings could be used as toppings, and the garlic can be increased or decreased based on family preference.
if using a traditional Italian loaf of bread, the toast may not take as long to bake.
