The one thing I must insist on, though, is butter. I mean, if you're vegan or you have an allergy or lactose intolerance or whatever, ignore me, but if you're just afraid of butter, STOP IT. Julia Child wants you to know that you need some fat in your diet so your body can process your vitamins. LISTEN TO JULIA.
You will need:
- A slice of bread
- A pat of unsalted butter
- Granulated garlic
- A toaster
- Toast your bread to the desired level of done-ness.
- Butter your bread* and let it sit for a bit, so it can melt. Once it's sufficiently melted, spread evenly across the entire slice.
- Mix granulated garlic and salt in your hand. Sprinkle the mixture over your buttered bread until it's as salty-garlicky as will please your palate.
- Eat! Or, for bonus points, scramble two eggs with as much spinach as can fit in the pan, add parmesan cheese and the remaining salt-garlic mixture, and serve alongside your garlic bread. Okay, NOW you can eat.
I hope you have enjoyed this cheater's recipe! But don't share it with your pets. Garlic is bad for them. Okay? Now off you go.
