Cheesy Garlic Texas Toast Recipe

Whenever we have Baked Spaghetti or any pasta dish for dinner, we make sure to have some sort of garlic bread with it.  My family loves the Garlic Texas Toast you can buy in the freezer section of the grocery store, so I decided to whip up some at home! This recipe is so easy and takes minutes to make. It only has a few ingredients, and it tastes 10x better than any frozen garlic bread you will buy at the store.
Start with your bread. You can make homemade bread (you need to try our Easy Homemade French Bread), or store bought bread. I usually like mine a little thicker, so I look for the Texas toast sliced bread, on the bread aisle. You can also use any bread you have on hand, it doesn’t need to be Texas toast or french bread, but we do recommend it. Something about biting into fresh thick bread with cheese and garlic spread… nothing better.
Now to prepare your spread. You can’t go wrong with four ingredients, that you most likely already have on hand. Mix together butter and garlic powder in a small bowl.  Then add a little salt and pepper, to taste. Take a basting brush and brush both sides of each slice of bread with the butter mixture and then place the bread slices on an ungreased baking sheet. Once on the baking sheet, put them in the oven and broil them. If only these pictures were scented. It smells like you just walked into an Italian bakery, and warm bread is in the oven, waiting for you to eat it!
Once the toasts are done, take them out of the oven, sprinkle some cheese and a little Italian seasoning, throw them back in, and in just minutes, you’ve got yourself some Cheesy Garlic Texas Toast. This pairs perfectly with our Ground Turkey Spaghetti and our Parmesan Ranch Corn. Sometimes my kids like to mix them all together and dip their garlic bread in it… I’m more of a food separator person, but you eat it, how you like it!
