Garlic Butter

When it rains it pours.. (washing machines and flooding taken care thank goodness.) Schools out and the kids are under foot. Meals get a little simpler and we start to take things outdoors. Now if the weather would cooperate... rain rain go away!.. With the weather a little out of sorts we look to comfort food. Garlic always fits the bill. This Garlic Butter can be spread on a loaf of french bread and toasted, stirred into your warm veggies or a baked potato, spread on chicken for baking or used with your bread dough for fabulous garlic bread sticks. oh, so many possibilities! Let the comfort begin...

Garlic Butter

1 cup butter (softened)
1 1/2 TBS minced Garlic
1 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp basil
1 tsp parsley

Stir all ingredients together and use right away or store in airtight container in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

Garlic Cheese Toast

Cut 1 loaf of french bread lengthwise. Spread butter liberally on both halves. Sprinkle with your favorite cheese. Put right on the middle rack in oven (no pan) at temp of 500 degrees. Bake for 5 to 6 minutes or until edges are crispy and cheese is melted.

I love making flavored butters. I love butter.
One time I made garlic butter for some guests and they wouldnt try it. I was sad about it.
Fortunately my family is very food adventurous.

I love garlic and eat lots of it. What a great way to use up all the garlic cloves I always have left over.
