directions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Slice baguette's (or French Bread) into 1/2" slices. (Cut on the diagonal).
  • Heat olive oil in small skillet or pan. (Don't get smoking hot or it will burn the garlic.).
  • Add the finely minced garlic cloves and cook very quickly. Not over 20 or 30 seconds, watching closely so you don't burn. (I strained out the garlic but Ina Garten didn't when she made her garlic bread).
  • Brush baguette slices with the olive oil and put on a baking sheet.
  • Sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
  • Bake in oven for 8 - 12 minutes or just until they are lightly browned.
  • To freeze: Prepare up to the point of brushing the bread with the garlic oil. Place on a baking sheet, put in freezer and freeze until firm. Remove from freezer, wrap well in plastic wrap and then foil. Label and return to freezer.
  • To serve: Unwrap and place on baking sheet. Proceed with directions and bake at 375 degrees for 12 minutes or until hot through.
  • NOTE: I used the smaller portions given for my baguettes but you may need more if using a loaf of French Bread.

    Easy and delicious! I love the garlic flavor and the bread was toasted just right! To freeze: After brushing the bread with the oil, I placed in freezer. When I got ready to serve, I took out, sprinkled with Parmesan cheese and baked for the full 12 minutes.Thanks Mammafishy!

<p>I was born and raised in Abilene, KS....the same small town that Dwight D. Eisenhower was raised in. After moving around a lot for 20 years, my family and I now live within 10 miles of Abilene. <br /><br />My dear husband and I just celebrated our 39th year anniversary in October 2015. I have two great children and 5 beautiful grandchildren, ages 14, 12, 10, 5 and 4. They have given me so many precious moments to hold dear to my heart and so many grey hairs...and I wouldn't trade these days for anything. They are my everything. <br /><br />I love to cook and try new recipes. I stumbled onto recipezaar a few years ago and it is now the only place I go looking for recipes. I love the wide variety of recipes and usually anything I search for, will provide me with many wonderful recipes to choose from. <br /><br /><img src="http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/1535/cheesesticker.jpg" alt="" /> <br /><br /><img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/EditBeforeandAfterSTICKER.jpg" alt="" /> <br /><br /><img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/personal/FRENCH-foodfun.jpg" alt="" /> <br /><br /><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v204/derf16/food%20photography%20series/MuffinLovesticker.jpg" alt="" /> <br /><br /><img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/Kaffee-sticker.jpg" alt="" /> <br /><br /><img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/PastastickerJPEG.jpg" alt="" /> <br /><br /><img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/Flourpowersticker.jpg" alt="" /> <br /><br /><img src="http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/1956/SoupsandsaladSTICKER.jpg" alt="" /></p>
