NOM NOM NOM!!!
A simple yet fulfilling [HAHA, its a pun, get it? full-Filling...cause you get full and you are filled... cause its food... ... ... yea... ] way to make garlic bread.
-Bread [I used hot-dog buns and bread rolls, but one could use any bread they like]
-Butter or margerine [some people even use vegetable oil, but I think it tastes kind of strange]
-Blender of some sort
For those of you who have never peeled garlic before, its not all that hard. I actually really like it.
First you have to pull it all apart into the bits, which are still wrapped in the skins.
Then you have to cut off the ends.
Then you just have to peel off the skins.
How many pieces you need depends on how much Garlic butter you want to make.
I used around four pieces, and that makes enough garlic bread rolls for 6 people.
Then I Blend that with my wonderful Magic Bullet.
I suggest blending this a LOT! Huge chunks of garlic on bread isn't entirely appatizing, to me at least.
The smaller you get the chunks, the better it will be.
Then scoop up two tablespoons of butter [more if you'd like it to be a bit less garlicy, less if you'd like a big *KAPOW!* of garlic].
Microwave it untill butter is entirely melted, then stir very well.
From here, you can apply it straight to the bread like an oil, or you can chill it for a while, which I did.
It won't turn back into that butter-like consistancy [at least not for a very long time], but when you chill it, its a bit easier to apply to the bread.
From here there are tons and tons of options!
You can fry it, or bake it, or... mircrowave it if you are so inclined. Each have different times and different needs.
If you fry it, put it butter side down, and I'd suggest just standing there, moving them around, maybe... 8 minutes or so. Could be more, could be less, but its pretty easy to get perfect.
If you bake it, I preheat it to 375, then put the pieces butter-side together and bake for around 10 minutes.
I have no clue what to do if you'd like to microwave it, but I can tell you the bread will be kind of soggy, it wont be crisp at all, but I suppose that'd be okay to someone who wasn't entirely picky though. If you are set on doing this, then I'd just make test batches. one for 1:30, then for 2:00, and so on untill you find the perfect time. It's better anyway, since microwaves can varry drasticly.
VIOLA! HOME MADE GARLIC BREAD!
Extra Things One Can Do:
You can add herbs like chopped parsley, and you can add things like parmesian cheese to make a more professional garlic bread.
Some people use sharp cheddar, Garlic salt, garlic powder, etc. etc. etc. to create a unique tasting bread.
I suggest just picking whichever sounds most appatizing and try it.
Even when it doesn't turn out how you'd have liked, its still wonderful :D
