It’s that easy! What I love about this recipe is that it uses ingredients that are easy to keep on hand. I usually will find the loaves of bread marked down at my local grocery store and immediately store them in the deep freezer once I get home. That way they won’t go bad until we have time to eat them. When I want to make garlic bread with our dinner, I simply take a loaf out of the freezer a few hours before I am going to cook so that it can thaw out and be easy to slice.

Lately, my favorite way to prepare bread for family meals is in our toaster oven. It is a lot easier and convenient to heat up just the toaster oven to make bread for our meals.
