Do you like garlic bread? Are you the sort of person who is always likely to have a stick of garlic bread in the freezer, ready to heat up and serve on the side of your dinner plate? But what happens when you fancy some garlic bread but you don't have a handy one to whip out of the freezer?
Those of you who have been following my recent exploits will know that I have recently had a glut of green garlic. One of the things I did with that was chopped some up and mixed it in with a block of butter. This I froze in an ice-cube tray to make convenient cubes of garlic butter. This is easy done too with crushed cloves of garlic if you prefer.
Should you suddenly find yourself with an urge for garlic bread, take 2 or 3 of the cubes of garlic butter out of the freezer and soften them in the microwave for 10 seconds or so. Then grab 4 slices of white bread and butter them all with some ordinary butter. Now rummage around in the back of your cupboard until you find your Breville (or similar) toasted sandwich maker and put this on to heat up. Next, turn two slices of the buttered bread over and spread the other side liberally with the garlic butter then sprinkle on a little mature Cheddar cheese. Complete the sandwich with the remaining slices of bread, making sure the ordinary butter is on the outside. Place the sandwiches in the toasted sandwich maker and cook until golden brown. Remove, and cut the triangles into smaller triangles to serve.
Job done. Enjoy.
