Ultimate Instant Garlic Toast

Total Time
Prep 2 mins
Cook 3 mins

Got 5 minutes? You can make garlic toast with real garlic! This kick-in-the-teeth garlic toast will keep the vampires miles away. Once I tried this, I've never made it any other way. Simple, yet satisfying.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 slice bread (I use my homemade honey wheat oatmeal bread - recipe on Zaar)
  • 1 clove garlic, fresh,peeled
  • butter (as needed)
  • 1 pinch salt (teensy weensy) (optional)


  1. Using your pop-up toaster, toast the slice of bread until it starts to brown.
  2. Firmly grasp the garlic clove, and rub it across the toasted bread.
  3. Continue rubbing until the entire clove of garlic has been rubbed into the toast.
  4. Butter the toast lightly- or heavily- your choice.
  5. Sprinkle with a teensy weensy pinch of salt, if desired.

Yeehaww! Great garlic flavor. I used some rustic French bread that I had grilled. Thanks Bobbie.

WOW! This is delicious, easy, quick, and much much healthier than most pre-made garlic breads. I used only about half a clove of garlic and the flavor was great! I used spray butter (zero cals) which is already salty, so I didn't need any salt. Thanks so much for this awesome recipe!
