I love this because I always have leftover bread and it goes to waste most of the time. The best part is that you can pull out as many pieces as you want and bake them straight from the freezer!

This surprized me that it actually worked. I had serious doubts but it was an incredible lifesaver for two reasons--I was able to salvage day old bread and make garlic bread ahead of time so that I could just throw it in the oven right as I needed it. I did up the garlic powder but other than that I kept the recipe the same. GREAT recipe. Read More

Awesome idea that works great for later when you are short on time. It's so convenient to have it waiting in the freezer! The recipe is good but to bring it to 5 stars double the amount of garlic. Read More

I love this recipe because I always have left over bread. The garlic toast was mild tasting. For a little more zip add garic salt to taste. Read More

Much better than buying it frozen from the grocery store. I've made it with garlic powder as well as with roasted garlic (recipe from this site as well). Was great both ways.:) Read More

This recipe is so convenient and tasty! The ONLY thing I changed was the garlic powder. I crushed real garlic (about 2 Tbsp as I? garlic) in my mortar (which I use often for Puerto Rican recipes). Other than that I loved it and my 4 yr old especially who is crazy about garlic bread! Thank you for the recipe!:-) Read More

I think this tasted a lot better than the pre-made kind from a box. It was very easy to make and great to have on hand. Read More

I hosted an Italian dinner for 40 people and wanted to have actual garlic toast to serve (versus heated up loaves of bread and butter) so made this ahead of time and froze it. It worked very well. Everyone seemed to like it (and some liked it A LOT -- coming back for seconds and thirds). My only complaint is that it was a bit salty. Next time I make this I will decrease the cheese to 1/4 cup add a little more garlic and use unsalted butter. Read More

The bread was very good. I only buttered one side before freezing it. Next time I make it I will butter both sides. It's so nice to have a bag of garlic bread in the freezer whenever I want it. Read More
