Easy garlic basil cheese toast


I kind of feel silly writing about something so simple. This is delicious.

Sliced french bread

2-3 cloves minced fresh garlic

3-4 tablespoons butter

basil paste – in the produce section in a tube

shredded parmesan cheese

I put the butter and garlic in a bowl and microwave it for 40 seconds total but stir after every 10 seconds. Allow to set for 2-5 minutes. Sprinkle the butter on sliced french bread.  Cover each bread with a thin layer of basil paste. Sprinkle with parmesan. Bake at 425 for 5-10 minutes until desired firmness in achieved.

I elevate my bread on a wire rack because I like it super crispy.  Also, I used to strain the garlic from the butter. My husband likes the garlic pieces so I started just leaving them in. You can do it either way.6E19D554-1DCD-46C2-8D26-BA57CC82F7AE
