Pan-Toasted Garlic Bread

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 5 mins

This is from Country Recipes, by Land O Lakes. We use it often in summer or when we just don't want to use the oven. It's very very good, and easy. Can use margarine in place of butter.

Used Italian bread cut into thick slices to prepare this bread. I didn't add the cayenne, as we were having it with spaghetti and I didn't want it hot. Great bread here that had us fighting over the last piece! Thanks Ms. Peg for this simple but delicious recipe!
