Garlic Bread

Garlic is well known as an antiseptic, and many other healthy properties.

 

Thinking about the Flu outbreak, after a bit of experimentation, we now use this method for making Garlic Bread.

 

It's a simple, and quick, and tasty recipe.

We already use this product in the kitchen, saves chopping up Garlic.

It's very convenient, available from Tesco

 

Garlic Bread using a George Foreman Grill

Two slices of bread, buttered (or margarine)

A teaspoon of chopped Garlic spread across one slice.

Slices put together, as for a sandwich.

Don't butter the outside of the sandwich.

Put on heated GF grill, for 5 minutes.

 

Remove, cut bread diagonally with a large knife / chopper.

 

Yummy

 

No need for baguette, nor oven, nor Aluminium Foil, for 20 minutes !!

 

Perhaps it does help prevent catching Flu, but it's tasty anyway.

Re: Garlic Bread

I'm not a fan of the lazy garlic stuff either, I prefer fresh, granulated or powdered garlic when cooking, no vinegar to taint the taste there... Smiley

Re: Garlic Bread

I prefer to grow my own. I have done so for the last 15 years or so. Unfortunately health problems prevented me planting them last Autumn so I will have to have a late crop. Luckily I have enough left from last years harvest.

Re: Garlic Bread

Of course natural Garlic is best, but for a quick, from the cupboard instantly spreadable Garlic it's fine for what it is....

 

And it doesn't go off over time as natural Garlic does, it's always available at home.

 

We use it in home made Curries, and Chillis, both extra hot, vinegar taste not noticeable.

 

The garlic taste is.

Just had two more GB's today.

I can't say I noticed the Vinegar taste at all, real world, not conjecture.

Perhaps the heat dissipates the Vinegar ?

 

Experimenting, two slices of Cheese added to the mix is quite nice too, allowing a bit extra cooling time before eating.

Again, no need to butter the external sides.

 

Now I just need to work out a way of stopping the Baked Beans oozing out (Beans on Toast) !!

This has become our 3am munchies snack of choice, coupled along with a large mug of Hot Chocolate...... mmmmmmm

In fact, that is what I am doing right now !

 

Quick & Easy and not messy at all.

 

The GB has a nice zing to it.

 

And virtually no washing up.

 

(Still working on the Baked Beans version)

I think the toaster & microwave wins that battle.

Re: Garlic Bread

I actually mentioned this thread to my sister, who has a George Foreman grill.

Uses it quite a bit, makes home made sandwiches with it.

I mentioned this thread to which she replied "I can't be bothered with that, I'll just buy it from the supermarket".
Me thinks - well what is the point in having a GF then?

Not that I can talk, my general rule is if it can't be Microwaved then I am not interested.

Re: Garlic Bread

So is she rich then ?

It takes more time to buy ready made GB, costs a lot more (than £0.25p)

 

And isn't open at 3am !!!

Re: Garlic Bread

Not round their way, plenty of shops (major supermarkets too) within a 10 minute walk to the High Street.
