Texas Garlic Toast

My kids love Texas Toast. The ones you buy in the freezer section with either garlic butter or garlic butter with cheese.
I had none the other night to make with dinner, but I did have a whole loaf of this
It was simple and good, and they wiped out every piece.
I buy loaves of this bread all the time for making french toast and I’m not quite sure why I never got the idea to make garlic bread with it. It’s perfect for this or french toast because of it’s thickness.
Texas Garlic Toast:
- 8 Pieces of thick bread like Texas Toast or Freihofer’s French Toast Bread
- 1 Stick of salted butter left at room temperature
- 1 tsp. dried parsley
- 1 to 1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
Place the room temperature butter in a bowl. Add the parsley and garlic powder and stir together well. You want the butter to be soft enough to be able to really cream this all together.
Lay out each piece of bread and spread on the butter in an even coat covering the entire top surface of the bread.
From here you can either stack it and place in the refrigerator until ready to use (which I did), or you can lay it out on a baking pan, butter side up, and toast it.
Set the oven to 375. Toast the bread until golden brown, watching to make sure it doesn’t burn. This should take about 8 to 10 minutes.
If you have it, which I didn’t, top with some shredded mozzarella before toasting.
