How to make Texas toast garlic bread – 2 Simple steps
It is so easy to make Texas toast at home. All you need is thick-sliced bread and a few cooking ingredients that you likely already have in your cupboard. Follow along with these few easy steps.
Go ahead and gather your ingredients and get ready to make this mouth-watering toast!
If you’re using bread that has been around for a bit you might want to know how long bread lasts in the fridge.
Make garlic butter
Now that you have your butter softened and your garlic chopped as fine as you can get it, go and add in your garlic powder, onion powder and dried parsley. Mix them all together until they are all incorporated. Make sure that garlic powder has not gone bad.
When making your garlic butter you want to use softened butter. You can either leave it out on the counter for an hour or so to let it soften or you can soften it in the microwave.
Not all butter is created equal. Please don’t ever use margarine, it is not butter. It is made up of all kinds of refined oils. Get yourself some good old butter that is made with buttermilk.
Make sure if you are using the microwave to watch it closely as you do not want to liquefy it!
I use a microplane to chop the garlic cloves super fine! The finer it is the more even the flavor will be and the more you will taste the garlic coming through.
You can mince it if you would like but you will end up getting little chunks of garlic on your toast and it may not be as pleasing.
Spread garlic butter on toast
Time to toast
Preheat your oven and pan
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. You always want to preheat not only your oven but your pan too for this recipe. Preheating your an will help give you that crispy, crunchy outside of the toast. Another benefit of preheating the pan is that you won’t have to flip the toast half way through.
Go ahead and liberally spread the garlic butter onto both sides of the slices. You want to make sure there is enough butter to seep into the bread a little but also not too much where is makes the toast soggy.
Your oven AND pan should be preheated at this point. Lay your buttered slices onto the preheated pan and put them in the oven. This should only take 5-7 minutes.
Check them and when they have a nice golden toast to them they are ready to go! Add them to your spaghetti dinner and please a crowd!
