I’ve always loved garlic bread, but all the butter and the salt can be a bit much when you’re trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle. My mom turned me on to an easier and healthier approach, and we enjoy this regularly in our home.
1 loaf whole wheat or good multigrain bread
1 garlic clove with the base of the clove cut off
Place slices of bread on a cookie sheet and lightly dab with olive oil. Place cookie sheet in a preheated oven (about 350º). When bread is browned as desired, remove cookie sheet and rub the cut end of the garlic clove on each piece of toasted bread. The garlic clove will literally dissolve onto the toast. A good rubbing can create a pretty potent piece of garlic bread, so use caution! We’ve “overdone” it a few times, which frankly tasted wonderful, but not everyone enjoys so much garlicky goodness!
Serve with your favorite Italian meal!
