Crispy Garlic Bread

garlicBread_1

I love garlic. I add garlic to almost every dish I cook and scoff at recipes that call for just 1 little clove of garlic. So my version of crispy garlic bread has both fresh minced garlic and garlic powder to really make the flavor shine. These are best hot and crispy right out of the oven.

Just a few ingredients will create a tasty appetizer or complement to soup or salad. They can be chopped into small cubes and baked longer to create garlicky croutons, too!
