So this is a great thing… I mix up all the ingredients, set it on the counter, and by dinner time the butter is softened and it can be mixed and spread on your choice of bread.
The recipe calls for a loaf of French bread, but I’ve used it on leftover hoagie rolls, hamburger buns, plain bread, etc. Also, since there’s just two of us I have mixed up some and kept it in the fridge for a few days and used it to make individual toast at several different meals. So… without further ado…
1/3 c. softened margarine or butter
1/4 c. parmesan cheese
1 garlic clove, minced (I’ve also used garlic powder)
1 t. dried basil
Loaf of French bread, halved lengthwise
Mix first four ingredients well. Spread on bread. Lay open face on a baking sheet and broil until browned to your liking.
Super easy and good!
