Kid Size Garlic Bread Loaves

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 10 mins

Was at a friends house and she was making lasagna and didn't have enough garlic bread for she made some "just for the kids". I was so shocked, who would have thought? Now this is what I fix if I'm in a hurry and don't have time for "real" garlic bread. They don't complain and they can help individualize their own if they want to.

  1. Split hot dog buns open and lay on cookie sheet (crust side to the cookie sheet).
  2. Spread butter on open side of each hot dog bun.
  3. Sprinkle with garlic.
  4. Place in 350 degree oven and bake until top side of bun is very lightly browned or until butter (and cheese-if added) is melted. Check often.

  6. May add mushrooms, black olives, pepperoni, mozzerella cheese, etc-- before placing in oven-- if desired. ~This is like a meal in itself.~.

This is great! I usually use my extra "buns" for bread crumbs, but since my crumb container is full I wanted to try this recipe. The bread it delish. My kids loved it because it was something different then reg. french bread. I used butter, garlic powder, mozz. cheese and chopped parsley. I will make these again, thank you for sharing this easy recipe with us.
