Ingredients

Instructions

  1. MInce the garlic and let sit on a plate for 15 minutes. This maximizes the creation of allicin, a nutritious sulfur compound.

  2. Melt the butter on low heat on the stove in a pan.  

  3. After the butter is melted, add the olive oil and mix well. Using a basting brush, slather on the oil mixture generously onto the 6 slices of bread until the entire cup of fat is used.

  4. Spread one clove's worth of minced garlic onto the each slice.

  5. Bake at 350 F/ 177 C until crispy but not browned - about 15 minutes.

  6. Serve immediately as a side dish or break into pieces to use as healthy croutons for salads. Refrigerate leftovers and rewarm in a toaster oven as needed.

  7. Refrigerate leftovers and rewarm in a toaster oven as needed.
