So, this is a little hokey, especially because it's not a recipe, and it's not at all "pretty or unique" it is just simple practical and fills that little empty spot- you know the one that's there when you finish dinner but you still have 10% hunger left in you??? Well, this takes care of that 10%! We do it on nights when dinner is a little light or when we need that extra crunch with a salad and I don't want to buy an entire loaf of french bread for the 2 of us that will get thrown out with mold on it in a day of two! You can definitely use the same idea with french bread, it's just as tasty! Hope it helps fill your 10% :)
Bread (I use Trader Joe's "Whole GRAIN" sliced bread)
Garlic Powder or Garlic Salt
Parmesan Cheese, shredded
Turn your broiler on (that's part of your oven if you have never used it!) Get out your bread slices, spread on your butter, sprinkle your garlic, top with parmesan cheese and pop it in the oven for just a few minutes. I lay them on something, a cookie sheet, a cake pan, something to keep them from making a mess all over my oven. Now keep your eye on these little guys, I have burned mine more times than I can count and they really do only take a few minutes!
