Make-Ahead Garlic Toast

I love this because I always have leftover bread and it goes to waste most of the time. The best part is that you can pull out as many pieces as you want and bake them straight from the freezer!

Original recipe makes 18 toasts


1/2 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 (1 pound) loaf Italian bread, cut into 1 inch slices

  1. Mix butter, Parmesan cheese, parsley, and garlic powder in a bowl. Arrange Italian bread on a large baking sheet and spread each slice with garlic butter mixture. Place baking sheet in freezer and freeze until bread solid, about 1 hour. Transfer bread to a resealable plastic freezer bag until ready to use.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Arrange desired number of slices, butter-side up, on a baking sheet.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until bread is toasted and butter is melted, 5 to 7 minutes.
