Our family's go-to meal for quick and easy satisfaction during the work week is spaghetti and meatballs, usually with garlic bread. I can't tell you the number of times that I've made the spaghetti and meatballs, only to open the freezer and discover that we're out of premade garlic bread, yikes! To remedy this I've started buying loaves of day-old discounted bread whenever it's available and making my own garlic bread to freeze ahead of time. This not only saves me time during the week when I cook, but also a great deal of money! Frozen premade loaves (even at the cheapest discount retailers) can run up a few bucks per loaf. With this recipe you can make a large quantity for cheap!
Easy Freeze-ahead Garlic Bread
Recipe by Sam B.
1-2 loaves of day-old bakery bread.
(any soft bread will do, you can even make garlic dinner rolls like I did below!)
1 stick margarine spread or butter
About 1 Tbsp Italian Seasonings
About 1-2 tsp garlic salt
Dash of garlic powder
Cut bread loaf in half lengthwise. In microwave, soften butter/spread (about 10-20 seconds.) Mix in all seasonings and spread on loaf halves. Put halves together like a sandwich, wrap, and freeze. When time to cook, unwrap a loaf an place butter side-up on a baking sheet. Heat for about 10 minutes at 350 degrees F.
