Garlic Bread

Homemade Garlic Bread ~ Our Cozy Den

We love garlic bread, but in the store it is SO expensive! One package for one dinner costs $2, minimum. And don’t get me started on all the junk in it! I was experimenting one day with some leftovers and I came up with a garlic bread recipe that my family loves, even more than the store-bought kind!

We’re going to start with some hamburger buns. I make this DIY recipe in bulk and keep some in the freezer, to pull out when needed. I usually make this recipe with my homemade buns. (The buns in the photos are store-bought though, because I had some buns that somebody gave me to use up.)

Next, put a stick of butter in the microwave, and cook for about a minute — until it’s completely melted (but before it explodes all over the place). Homemade Garlic Bread ~ Our Cozy Den

While that’s cooking, cut all of your buns in half.

When the butter is melted, stir in 1½ teaspoons of garlic powder. Then pour the butter/garlic into the bottom of a shallow baking pan.

Then place the buns, flat side down, into the butter. Swish them around a little bit to get it to soak up all the butter you can.

Bake at 375º for 10 minutes, or until it is the level of crispness you like.

My kids love this bread because it has a super crispy top and a yummy soft bottom! I love it because it uses items I already have around the house, so I don’t have to remember to buy garlic bread. Plus, it’s easy, cheap, & healthy (or at least healthiER).
