Quick Garlic Toast

Pin It
Pretty much every time we eat pasta, it is accompanied by some type of bread. Carb overload? Yes. But necessary? Even more yes.

I usually have some Texas Toast on hand or Chris stops at Panera on his way home from work to pick some up, but pasta was a last minute idea when this Garlic Toast came into play. We had recently gotten back from going to Mario Batali's restaurant/grocery store, Eataly, in New York (completely amazing by the way) where we purchased some pasta and sauce that we decided to try. Since no bread was in sight except for our regular sandwich bread, I had no other choice. This combination really worked, though! It was garlicky enough and the Parmesan and herbs really enhanced the flavors. So next time you have a bread shortage like we did, try this one out!

Printable Recipe

  • 4 slices white bread
  • 4 tbsp. butter
  • 2 tbsp. garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. basil leaves
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 1/2 tbsp. Parmesan cheese
In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter. Add the garlic, basil, oregano and Parmesan cheese. Mix until well combined.

Preheat broiler to medium.

Place slices of bread under the broiler and cook until light brown. Remove from oven and place toasted side down on a cutting board. Spread mixture over the top of each slice (uncooked side), reserving a small amount. Place pieces of toast back under the broiler with the buttered side facing up. Allow to cook for a few more minutes until golden brown. Remove from broiler and spread remaining mixture over top. Enjoy!
