Super Simple Garlic Bread

I have discovered a new favorite way for making garlic bread! As the kitchen remodel continued into the 7th week, we were growing tired of just buttering sliced bread to eat with the pasta dishes I had tucked away in the freezer. I got creative yet again with my electric pancake griddle. I am still using the bathroom counter as my cooking space - notice the taps in the background. It is quite tricky to balance the long griddle on my tiny bathroom counter without it falling into the sink.

I sliced the loaf of French bread in half the long way. (The kids had eaten a few slices off the end already which is why it is not a full loaf.) I buttered it up and sprinkled on a little garlic powder. Then I flipped it over onto the hot griddle and let it toast until it was golden brown. The verdict - perfectly toasted garlic bread that we devoured. It worked out so well that I know I will use this method many more times. It allows us nicely toasted garlic bread without heating up the entire oven and kitchen. 

If you don't have one of these electric griddles, watch for one to go on sale. I see these large ones for less than $20 at least a couple times a year. We use them for pancakes, grilled cheese sandwiches, garlic bread and biscuits. I know you can also bake griddle cookies on them. (It's been awhile, but I do remember doing it once. I'll have to look up a recipe and try it again.)

The kitchen is to be completed by Friday of this week - we can't wait!
